Collyer, Kansas, Sep 29th 1888My Dear Brother JohnI thought I would pen in a few lines to you with J's this morning We have not heard from any of you since we saw Sister Annie * would have written before [stricken word] but though perhaps you was still away off, on your tour of investiga -tion, relating to the great work you have understaken. I suppose it is impossible for me to form any conception of the hard labor & thought & time it will cost you. but it will be grand, when accomplished. I hope your health has been benefited by your trip. for I am afraid, you are work -ing to awful hard.
