I find that I have no demunition of practice yet and if this should continue at its present extent, I can make a good living and gain a little every year, by using economy in expenditures, and this important point I hope I may not neglect. If I should, I may expect in a very short time to be at my end, in peace. My situation requires the most rigid economy compatible with comfort and respectability. Had some conversation with my friend in relation, certain culinary utensils. Thus you see I am preparing for other modes of living.
