I expect to go to Minneapolis tomorrow aft[ernoon] and will mail this there, for I must own that I dont [sic] feel at all satisfied with the Post Office here, and will not have anything to do with it except when I am forced to. Unfortunately I have to depend on it most of the time, and cant [sic] do anything else with my letters from home, but sometimes I can do better with the letters I write home than to trust them to this miserable P[ost] O[ffice]. You know the experience we had during our first week here, well last
