[letterhead]3as these books with you, and if it should happen that you should need my weak hand and feeble sense you would be more than welcome here, come work, come play.I wish we might have you here for even a few days. I have been on the point of writing you, more than once, since you came back from that last globe-girdling ramble of yours, to beg and insist that you come for a while, at your convenience. Now that I am already so much in your debt I am making bold to tell you that nothing could so much delight us. Can't you find time and the way, one of these days soon? I am now engaged in some work for the Country Assessor, but that will presently be out of the way, and then we can have time for a quiet word. We await your pleasure in this.We are well, but considerably occupied with the effort to recover from the January freeze, which cost us dear. We all send our warmest regards to you, and beg to be remembered to Mrs. Funk, of whom we cherish very delightful recollections. We hope to see you some day soon, and when we shall see you, we hope you will not be in any hurry. So hoping, I amSincerely Yours,J. E. Calkins.05423
