May 1st 1857 Dear Bob We received two letters from you yesterday, one written when you were in the woods, the weather is a little better than it was, that is warmer, today it is rainy, we are doing more business in the nursery than we were – but now right about home, so I do not have any chance to distribute bugging bottles, and every one is so busy here that we can not get any thing for you, so you must not expect us to. I shall skin what birds and mice I can get but I can not go out and hunt the birds and dig up the mice myself, and Major works very hard, he never has a moment to spare. Uncle Flint is not here, much of the time, and when he is the boys keep him at work – We have lots of work and [illegible: servicing? receiving?] to do and almost every day company. So you see how it is. I want to help you and to get every thing for you that I can – but it will not be much. I am sorry that you are not getting on better – with your collections. We send a very pleasant letter from Miss Fitch, she speaks of coming
