February 20, 1863

Friday.  The mail arrived early & was distributed just after breakfast.  Got a letter from Pamelia, written Jan. 26th-29th & mailed the 30th.  At that time she had not rec’d any letters from me for four weeks, & supposed I had not got those she had written.  I have rec’d all that have had time to reach me, and I think all of mine will arrive in due season.  Have been writing by odd jobs for nearly a week, & this morning have put me letter in the box, but suppose it will not go from here for a day or two.  I am thankful to the kind Providence that has kept in safety all the dear ones at home.  Surely goodness & mercy have followed us all hitherto & I will try to trust our kind heavenly Father for the future.
