My Dear Sir
I have writen to you several times since I saw you but have received no letter in answer, but no doubt you have writen, as I learned when I went back to Georgia last fall that the postmaster at Madison had sent two letters of mine to the general post office not knowing where to forward them to me. If you are in Columbus you will get this note & must answer it, as I expect to travel the most of this year & will perhaps go to North Carolina & will visit you if you are there when I go, & I don’t know but that I may come to Columbus if you will let me know your whereabout's. Write to me as soon as you get this & direct to Camden Arkansas I have not seen Geo Lea or my sister lately but expect to visit them soon. I am not very well pleased with this country although I have moved my negroes out, perhaps it is because I do not find any ladies here of the right stripe. Give my love to my aunt & my cousins
Yours truly
Weldon E. Wright
John M. Moody Esqu

Weldon Edwards Wright is writing to John Mason Moody. John's wife, Martha William (Wright) Moody is Weldon's father's James Wright's half sister. Both had the same father, William Wright, but different mothers. James, who married Martha Williamson in 1809, was much older than Martha. Weldon's sisters both married Leas--Ann Blunt Wright married Thomas Lea, and Sarah Elizabeth Wright married George Lea of Caswell Co. NC mentioned above.
Letter # 29 is also authored by Weldon Wright. Although he says he is not well pleased with Arkansas, he remained there and married Lucy Macon Green. Whether she was an Arkansas lady, I do not know.
