Maggie [Margaret Muir Reid]
 01490Brother John. I go to [Wakering?] tomorrow to see about train & will write you when we will start which I think it will be about 2 weeks. I am ready to come now but Maggie think it is awful short notice to pick up & go – there will be 4 of us Maggie May Johnnie & myself. Harry will have to stay & take care of the place & horses as they are not old enough to sell & besides a lot of Rye sown that will have to be harvested in June 80 acres & other crops: also a lot of tools & wagons Buggy carts & a great many other things that cant be disposed of at the present time. therefore it is necessary for him to stay &look after them. trains run every day & when Maggie gets a good ready we will start I think 2nd March[in margin: if everything is all right with Maggie your Brother [illegible] Reid]
