[4]at a good time, none of us knew how much it was needed until after she had received it. I have not heard how things are with her since then she does not say much unless necessary when we try to help her over a hard place until supplies come I will try to let you know how things go with her. The rest of us are all very comfortable, with good food, warm clothing, and plenty of wood to keep the fires going. I am sure we have much to be thankful for. Your kind thought of us all is very comforting for we feel that if a horrid time should come your hand is every ready to help.I saw Hiram yesterday and sent out your New Years[5]gift to Anna and Kenneth.She has not been well, and has not been here for some time. I went out to their place in the fall and staid nearly three weeks I always enjoy going into the contry for a while. The neighborhood is greatly changed since we lived there. It is ten years past last September since we left the old place. I enjoyed your letter very much, we were so glad to hear of you all. I pray every day that the Lord may bless you all and give to each one just what they need the most.With love to all I amAffectionatelySarah01916
