[1]Portage, Wisconsin,January 18, 1894My dear uncle John,--Your letters and the Express Order came the other day, and we all thank you very much for the kind New Year's remembrance.I divided the money up and gave each one their share to get for themselves what they liked best. I thought that would give more satisfaction, and you do not mind, do you?01770[3]We are all pretty well here,--That is, we are all up and about our work as usual, thankful that we are not seriously ill, like so very many all around us.But there are some colds and indispositions.None of us have yet had the Grippe this winter, and all now hoping to escape it altogether.We have remarkable weather for this place at this time of the year.The snow is entirely gone, and it is warm and mild, like spring.01770
