Jessie WIlson Sayre writes to her aunt about her family’s moving plans

Dear Aunt Agnes,

Our stay up here has lengthened out interminably. To do our job thoroughly would take a month. We have already been at it a week and though we are now seeing day light ahead that is we are ready for packers and truckers to do their part, packers and truckers are not to be had at one's beck and call. It is hard work mentally and physically though there is much that is pleasant connected with it, especially the really getting to know Frank's family. I have been very neglectful of them.
All this to explain why our departure from S'conset is delayed also because it will take us some time to pack up there and I wishall come to it fatigued. Will it put you out very very much if we keep Augusta with us until we are ready to leave? Please drop me just a line there if it will and we will gladly arrange to take our meals at Aisley house.
I will drop you a postal when I reach home sometime the latter part of next week and have found out how soon I can get a carpenter and how long it will take him to pack us up. And then I will dispatch Augusta to you if you have not asked for her sooner.
With dearest love to all from your loving niece-in-affection,
