Dear John

It seems a long time since I have had a letter from you, letting us know how you all are I expect you are so engaged in matters of importance, and time is precious When I mail this letter, I will also mail the book called, A guide to Dunbar that Mr [Combe?] sent to me


some time ago I sent the Book to Lincoln and Danl. has had the picture of the [Towns?] Photographed and enlarged So that I can see the dear old Town quite plainly There are the Old Kirk in the Cemetery where so many of my family and friends are laid to rest – How could I ever forget Dunbar There are also a Cemetery in Kansas City not to be forgotten

I hope your family and John Reids are all enjoying good health We are all in our usual health here Joanna has been in the country a good part of the summer but we expect her home this week I send love to all the Friends not forgetting Mrs Strentzel
