    since we left. Had a card from Dr. Loyd a letter from John Sep they told us of
    the storm had a rather hard storm and rain on the night of the 17th. Laws said
    it was the worst looking cloud he ever saw I did not get much damp. We came
    through graham ask for Fayett Tanksley they said to go by but the country is so
    rough and Laws had not saw Poke fro so long and they did not want to go to poks
    if the went to Fayetts so I did not insist. Papa I am afraid I have scroffolo
