All had been managed so well that they came to me as a complete surprise, I felt overwhelmed with so much kindness.Very lately I received a long letter from Mrs Sandersonat present she is in her daughter's home in Milwaukee. She always wishes to be remembered to you. She reads all connected with your work with much pleasure and feels proud to remember that she knew you as a boy.How many memories of the long ago have been brought up, hearing from so many old friends.Thanking you again I amAffectionatelyYour Sister Sarah.
