      family and their conrades. I was the first born of NINE BROTHERS AND SEVEN SISTERS, ALL OF ONE FATHER AND MOTHER. I have been married the second time, have raised two sets of children, mothers both dead, Children seventeen in number all dead or married and left me. My children and grandchildren and great grandchildren and their conrades, are so numerous and scattered over the world that their number cannot be known. But few of the old ones are alive to-day, not one as old as I now am-and never was-and my departure is at hand. I am living in a house alone by myself, under the watch-care of my youngest daughter and family. The rest of the letter contains a beautiful testimony for his savior the Lord Jesus Christ. Caleb Smith's special request left with his church and people.
