Maggie [Margaret Muir Reid]
Crete, Neb. Feb 22nd. 1890.My Dear Brother JohnYour good & kind letter was rec'd the first of the week & I do thank you and Louie . we have done much thinking since then & would like to come & accept your most generous offers if the way was clear, John has written, too explaining the situation somewhat - but it is hard to write so as to make one understand the outs & ins. John does not feel like abandoning the ranch after so much being paid on it, but is trying hard to sell it if he got no more for it than would pay Sarah so unless he leaves it (& it is not likely he can
