[1]Collyer Kan Feb 151891Dear Brother JohnWe received your very surprising letter friday. & you Funny Boy you took much for granted which we had not decided upon, as it seemed to us (to me anyway) that we could not leave this place without loosing everything, for an indefinite time. I had just got as far as being reconciled to John going away & leaving us to live here without him awhile but your letter has worked wonders you have farely converted us over to thinking
