Letter from Peter Evans Force to Uncle Manning Force
1208 K Street
May 2, 1881
My dear Uncle,
Today I had to stay in on account of mumps but I past the day very well. I sewed some and drew and various other things. I like my school very much as it has a large play ground and if you walk about three quarters of a mile you come to a large wood that looks very pretty with its pretty little pink and blue star shaped flowers and its large trees running streams and high rocks. The streams afford a good many fish. If you cross the road you can cut a young poplar tree that makes a very good fishing poles and there is a store not far off where you can get very good lines with a sinker, hook, cork and every thing needed for three and five cents. Day before yesterday I went fishing with Mr. Phillips and James but as neither of us had a bite were were not very successful. Mr. Phillips did not fish.
I hope you are all well.
Your affectionate nephew
