My Dear Friend,

We asked mother the questions and her answer I send numbered according to questions. 

She said whoever got the information in regard to the Omahas believing they came from animals and addressed the dying in the words "you came hither from the animals and you are going back hither, must have got it from Betsey Dick.

She laughed at the idea, said Father had told Mr. Dorsey to be careful from whom he got his information. Am glad you think of coming out and hope you will not change your mind.

Thank you so much for all
