1846, Aug 25 -- Personal Correspondence
Catherine M. McDonald of Shelby County, TN to John McNeill, Gold Region, Moore County, NC. Mr. John McNeill: These lines will let you know that we are well myself Father [John McDonald] & sister Ann [McDonald] are at this time at cousin Phillip McNeills sister Ann [McDonald] stays mostly at cousin R. McIvers the connections are all well. Father has lost the sight of one of his eyes and is getting very infirm Cousin S. McNeill was at cousin Phillips [McNeill] about twelve months ago and we have not heard from him since he was there in Louisiana he has not got our money from Uncle [Simon] Murchison yet and I expect never will. Cousin John if you please I want you to inquire of Angus McAskill if he is in North Carolina, yet what part of Georgia cousin John McDonald is living in also where I should direct a letter to him. I want to write to him to come after Father for we have had to stay with cousin P. McNeill til I am not only ashamed but mortified about it he is the only friend we have had in this country - and he has got a very large family of his own - if you please answer these lines as soon as possible so that I can write to cousin John McDonald whenever I receive your answer. Give my love to Aunt [Isabella] McNeill and tell her that I very much regret ever leaving N Carolina. I have nothing to write that would interest you Father & Sister Ann joins me in sending there love to you. All yours with respect. Catherine M McDonald.
