We all looked for him in the 2.15 train this afternoon, & her disappointment and ours was great, when he failed to come.I re-enclose the money order thinking that if he borrowed money in case you could return it; or could use it in any other way you see fit. In any case I thnk the order will have to be filled there and if returned, an order on the Portage office will be necessary. Perhaps I am mistaken.She seemed worse this afternoon and I had to call Dr. [illegible] in. He seemed to think some of her symptoms improved but on the whole spoke very discouragingly and ourhearts are very heavy. Still if the Lord sees best we know she will yet be restored. He says the damage [illegible] weak heart is great. John started for Boston yesterday morning feeling sure that "Dan" would be here in a few hours. He fully intended to hand him the money for his return trip but did not think of saying so.Sarah is starting for the office so will close in haste with love to you & the children.Pray for usAnnie L.
