Dear Brother John

Your welcome greeting came to me [much too?] late to be appreciated and we trust that the months to come in /84 will bring us less of anxiety - than the month that has passed-

Happiness has not been lacking but we have been very anxious sometimes over our little Howard who has been sick - He is nearly well again and [once?] you receive this will likely be quite well. He has not been real well for five or six weeks.

Willis has been sick too
