I close with kindest love to all.AffectionatelyMother[in margin: 547]Portage April 21st 1890Dear JohnTime is ever on the wing, and has again brought us to see another of your birthdays. May heavens best blessings be showered upon you more and more abundantly each year of your life. I expect you are now enjoying warm pleasant weather after the wet muddy time you had in winter. We have had a very mild pleasant winter with very few real cold days.
