I will try once more to write a few lines. I would not say a few
lines, but I do not feel very well. But, I do want too so bad
for I am so lonsome; feel so much more so when I'm not well. I have
come to Marshaltown to stay a few days and get me a few things for winter.
Well, I do hope you are all well and doing well. The rest of the
family, as far as I know, Fannie Landes has another baby boy.
Since I last wrote to you, not (Nate)Stout 's have moved to Conred; and I
suppose Linley's wife will be sick about the middle of next month---is
poorly in health. Now I have thought so much of you in my lonely evenings.
If you could only come over and visit me; but it is so, and I have to
contain myself. Well dear ones, I and Linley has got some cards for
all our family. Aunt Ruth Wileys, Aunt Fannie Lundey, tho was sent to
us from New Jersey. I suppose tho, Doctor had sent Father's name to
them on the death role.
So, we will send yours with this letter in rememberance of father.
I would be very glad you could come and see us this winter, if you could do
it. If you could without scarificing too much; if it is God's will if
not, meet me in heaven.
I can't hear a word from George nor John to tell them of Fathers death.
My love ever to you, and little boys' grandma loves you dearly
Write whenever you can.
Do come if you can.
