William went to town to-day and Sarah came home with him on the Accommodation train. They have had a late letter from Kate, Maria the colored woman who was with her when Lucy & I was there, was taken sick the day after we left and is dead. The neighbors were afraid to come in thinking the disease was contagious. So Kate took care of her night and day. I fear that she will be the next victim.
Mr. L. Wilson writes to William he has bought him stock in the N. Y. and Gunn gold mines, Colorado.
