Fayette Friday – Eugene B. Scofield, 15 March 1886

Letter transcription:

New Castle, Ind. March 15, 86

My Dear Sister:

You ask why I do not write, and my humble reply is I have no excuse. However, I have been from home so much, and my time has been so occupied when at home with my professional labors that I have little time or disposition to write.

Last Friday Ettie and I went to Summit where she will remain for some ten days during my absence at Cadiz for a week or so. I returned from S. next day, and spent Sunday at Millville, and have just got home. Am all alone. I go to Cadiz this 2 p.m.

We met Bro. Wiles on the train Frid— on his way to Marion. Said he had just heard from folks west. Said the church at Connersville are going to remodel their house to the turn of $3,000. He was

much elated at the idea. Says it will be.

Now my dear sister you have about all the news I can impart.

Dr. Booe, our good neighbor and brother, has been sick, but is some better.

A Mrs. Kinsey, who was visiting her daughter, on the opposite side of the street from us died this 7 a.m. two hours ago.

Bro. D. K. Van Buskirk is to be here next week and the week after.

The death rate is rather high this Spring in this county.

Thanks for C.[Connersville] papers, they are always welcome.

Give my love to all, and accept much yourself. Would be glad to have you come up as soon as you can make it convenient.

Your Brother in much love
E.B. Scofield
