Phillips Wis.June 17,/89Dear Sister Emma:Do not be alarmed at seeing a letter from me. I have often realized that I ought to write to you but you know how easy it is for house-keepers to be poor correspondents. but as the present occasion give additionalreason why I should write I gladly do so. Doubtless you are wondering how well I am, I am very well considering all things - and have no fear as to coming events further than that the little being may be very little and very frail, still we will hope for the best, and a short-time now will tell the story - Our little people are in the best of health
