Nov 27th 1896
You must not think that I am going to tell you anything new or strange because I write. That would be out of my power. You have lived here and know how little news reaches here. I send you two newspapers the only ones I have seen since I came here except a Dutch paper sent her to Mr. Wickeland as it will not be very interesting to you or I, I will give it to Mr. Frazier for gun wadding. I think we will hear more news now as there is a regular mail to Fort Graham once a week. I like Housekeeping very much, I wish you could come and see us now. Our Mother in Law is coming up this week to stay with me awhile.
I have not heard from your relations lately but when I was in Hillsborough, I saw Isabella and Elvie Ward. They were well and very lively. Write to me whenever there is any ?.
I like to get letters even if I have no news to writie in answer to them. I have not heard who is elected President yet.
Yours in haste Emily A. Frazier
P.S. I have a ticket to a big Masonic Ball in Waco Christmas but I will not go I guess.
