Mississippi Female College
Hernando Miss Dec. 20 1861
Your note was handed me by Eliza, I set out the same evening to hunt up the paper, (I do not take it) I hunted from store to store, from the post office, to the Printing Office, and it seemed as if I should fail in getting a copy — at length I met with a lettered gentleman who calls himself Johny West, who informed me he could find a copy, which he handed me a day or two ago.
I send it by Eliza — I do not know who wrote it, You will find an account of the concert which preceeded yours also in the paper. I know nothing of the author of this either.
I will say in conclusion that your concert made a fine impression on our community, I have heard it complemented frequently, and feel that I can
safely say, that every one of your _ audience was
highly _ at the performance of all who
participated in your exhibition. Sarah & Johnny return you their best respects, and both join me in wishing you a merry as well as pleasant Christmas. Pleas present our respects to your fathers family and also to Marian and her hous hold Very Respectfully
William I. Berryman
