Dear Cousins One and All:
We have been notified by our very efficient officers that it is time
for the annual Cousins letter. It is a beautiful morning, -- the sun is
shining, birds singing, sap running, and we have every evidence that
spring is here. We have lived through another winter without any serious
trouble and are looking forward to the garden, flowers, and most
important, our children and our friends can get to visit us more often.
Shall look for Treva
and her family at Easter time and Eva
will come about May 1st.
Just at present the roads are almost impassable1. Nelson has been moving, -- a Springtime pleasure,-- but with very good results. Where we used to have seven Campbell families on this side2 of the river, we have that many good Farmington [Township - wbt] families now, who are a great help to the Church and town, and several more across the river, -- while there is just one left who can claim the name of Campbell and that is Ida Campbell Eaton.
I want to say that Clifford Young need not think that the pleasure was all on his side, while he was preaching to us that summer, for we enjoyed having him with us, especially in the pulpit of the Church3, -- that is sacred in the eyes of the Campbell family. We have a very efficient man here at present, -- the Rev. F. B. McFeely.
As usual, Cousin Will Selph picked the right ones to be the officers of this Correspondence Club and we are very fortunate to have so many able ones among out numbers.
Charlie Congdon made me a visit recently, -- we always enjoy his visits.
Will just say in closing that I am quite likely to be "At home" all summer and hope that none of you will forget where I live for I shall be very glad to see you.
