How often I thought of you I can not say but it was a number of times. We found no sleighing and to-morrow will have, no doubt, a tedious trip in the stage. As soon as I arrive at Oswego I will write to you, but as we will be on the road until after night you will probably miss a day recieving letters.
We didnot come on the same road that you Clara 1 & I took, and therefore did not see the old house in which we spent such an unpleasant night. When you write to me dont forget to tell me of any news that you may get in letter whilst I am gone. —
I find that I love you just the same in Adams that I did in Sackets Harbor. A thousand kisses and much love to you.

I found your note stuck to the top of the valise and read it with the greatest pleasure. Although I may not dream of you I think of you very very often and of how much I love you.
All the officers of the Court Martial are here and we think that we will not be detained more than two or three days.
Our ride to-day was very fatiguing. All the seats were taken and Mr. Hunt and myself were obliged to take a passage on top of the stage. Bad roads compelled the stage to travel abo[u]t as
