Sarah [Muir Galloway]
They are all well, with no end of work to do. Kenneth is eight years old now and is attending school. Marjorie has not gone yet but has learned to read at home and can write me a little letter sometimes. In our last letter from Annie L - she says that her health is better, she has pleasant people in the house with her, a widow and her daughter. She also talks of the extremely hot weather, she says the grass in the yard is brown and dry. I also had a letter from Joanna a few days since, she has been quite sick again, she had neuralgia of the heart, or about the heart, she says that it took away her strength more than anything she ever had and effected her left arm so that she could scrcely use it.
