Monticello Nov. 15, 1876


Dear Pat,
Some time has elapsed since the reception of your epistle. I have time now and I
will attempt a response. About the questions you did not answer all of them. If I do have
hard lessons I answer more promptly than you do. Why do you not answer my letters as
soon as you receive them? You must not forget to tell me about what R.T. said Miss
Lizzie Barnard looks as pretty as a pink. Have you a sweetheart in Morganfield, Ah!! I
suppose your heart is still in Monticello. Drew& Hull Tilden will be elected by an
overwhelming majority. Politics is the talk of the day down here, how is it up there?
"Let us to the Blue eyed beauty of the South." I suppose that you are as dead in love with
Lizzie Adeline as ever, are you not? Where did The [Theophilus Beatty Anderson] go to
school at? Has he graduated? Write a note her through me. I will deliver it to her with
the greatest pleasure. Will you do so? I think that Charlie Marvin has the inside track on
you old boy.
When are you going to send me your photograph? Look now, you don't break the
photographer's glass. Old Folsom is as hang [?] about the neck as ever. Be sure & tell
me what Taylor said about me. Burn Bird is as big as ever. Do you ever show any body
my letters? Tony McRory has the blues most terribly Chas Johnson is ahead of him.
Write soon,
John Turnbull Jr.
Nov. 20th 1876
C.S. Well Pat as I have not sent this letter yet I will write you a few more lines. Charlie
Glover and myself went over to see the [word omitted?] Miss Barnard's last Friday night
and I had a "hi" old time. A good many of the boys & girls went out to Cousin Carrie's
last Saturday to the Cave grinding but Miss Lizzie was not along with the crowd. I was
with it. Well I must close. You must excuse this very sadly written letter as I am in a
hurry. "Go it lemons if you do get squeezed."
Write soon,
To yr. sincerely
Theo. [?] Turnbull Jr.
