Dellrose, Tennessee February 9, 1896

Son George & daughter Katie, we rite you a few lines to let you know how we are getting along. We are not doeing so well now. We are growing old and feeble not in good health. I have too much blood goeing to head. Causes me to have spells that I know nothing while they last and getting to have them often. Your Ma is hardley ever well. In fact we can hardly make a living we are old and feeble. We are in worse fix then we ever were in our lives. Aint able to do much and therefore cant make much. I will close by telling of you and Katie that we would be glad to see you Rite soon and often so that we can hear frome you.

P. W. Moyers
