Friday - Oct [October] 19th 1849 my Dear Husband

It is nearly two weeks - since I have heard from you. but expecting you have been continually engaged and the mail not very direct. I have not been uneasy.

we are all quite well to day. Richard is still improving. he is much better off than when I wrote last.

I rode in Town an hour this - morning expecting to see mr [Mister] williams he has not got home yet. he has lost his - election and Rogers is States attorney. I have no doubt it will be to his advantage greatly, but is it as note a compliment to the judgement and intelligence of [added: the] legislature of Tennessee .

we have most delightful weather again. and I enjoy [added: it] highly mr [Mister] Ballard has made your pens as you directed. and has put 24 hogs - they will nearly get in the corn off the ground for the wheat this week it is turning out very well.

I am going to have company to night. (Dr [Doctor] warren and wife and brother Taylor.) and have not time to write you a longer letter. as I have a few things to attend to. and it is getting in the afternoon and my letter must be sent in early.

I hope by this day week you will be able to start home we are all getting anxious [added: for] you to come and I know you are becoming restless yourself. I shall not write again unless I - find your stay will be lengthened. so - farewell.

your affectionate wife
E A Fitzgerald
