delays in answering you. Though eighty six, mother has still to [bear?] her part of earning the daily living and it leaves us no time for visiting, or in fact leisure of any kind. Your girls will doubtless have the advantage of attending the University some day so we may hope to see you all then. Neither mother or I can use our eyes at night so we are just slowly and delightfully dipping into your work bit by bit.SincerelyM. F. Benton.
