[letterhead](2)CHICAGOThe reading this clipping, this morning, was a great shock to us, it was a bolt from a clear sky, as we had not even heard that your dear wife was ill, only knew that poor Helen was a sufferer. O! John, it was terrible and you, dear good man, and your beautiful children, did not deserve such a visitation. If sympathy for you and yours in your affliction can make your grief any easier to bear, you know that you have the warmest and most heartfelt sympathy of Your sincere friendsAl & Fay SellersP.S. I send this to Martinez because I don't know where to reach you, and with it we send the hope that you and Helen may soon be restored, at least, to good health. You have your children to love & care for and stay, their dear father. Shall write, at once, to Lummis for news of you.
