[Mary Muir Hand]
I would, of course, much prefer to have his com- pany, yet if he had not time to spare, maybe I shall come alone; especially if I do not have to change cars or if I can check baggage through. But you will hear from me again ere that time. Your [ carpet?] is finished but has not yet brought home as we have not had a good opportunity of so doing. If we cannot send it before I come I will bring it in a trunk Your thimble too is here and could have been sent had we not been expecting Willis. Brother John has made us glad with the inteligence that he intends spending next winter in New York and will visit us before that time, [underlined: You] “pick a date. If he cannot spend Christmas with us we will have to appoint the reunion before that time, but then I think likely he will. Sarah was in town a few days ago and reports the family re- covering finely from the measles, but you ought to have seen David’s mouth as he recounted the horrors of his own dear self having to wash dishes
