I arrived here last night all OK, and " and well and doing well and hope these few lines
will find you all enjoying the same blessings."
Mr. Erwin didn't come, but sent a letter in his stead. I will be here a few days and next
week will move out to the factory site and occupy the "OLD AVERA HOMESTEAD." You see they spin
it a little differently, but I think it is all the same. At least is looks like all the old Avery
homestead I have ever seen - fine place before the War and evidences of wealth or at least good
circumstances, but now owned by people they all but owned before the War.
Fayetteville is to have two new RRs now, at least that is the talk and I think it very likely,
one from Durham and the other from Concord, so you see they will be pretty well fixed from a railroad
point of view. Hope you are all well. With love to all
