-not know me - as they are growing up - I am growing down - but all is well that ends well and now I close with kind regards to all both old and young Affectionately Mother

[illegible] [Sister?]


Portage 28th June 1884 Dear Danl

Tomorrow being your birthday, I most gladly "write now" to congratulate you and wish you many happy years of health, and gladness of heart_ _

I hope you and Emma and all the children are well- I wonder if you are having as hot weather at Lincoln as we are having here nearly all of June [we?] have been oppressed with heat


Mary with her two boys have been with me for the last two weeks and they are able to make things very lively in my usually very quiet home _ this is a good change, and brings old times to remembrance in some degree

You would be very sorry to see Katie she has been much worse lately - and she now fully understands her situation - this is really dreadful - she rode out a few days ago - and called on me for a little time and bears up wonderfully well


I am very sorry for David he is much tried about all this although he dont say much about it his health has been quite good lately - Carrie is able to attend to all the household affairs which is a great comfort to them all and the rest of the family are well

Tell Anita I hope she will write a letter to me during the vacation, and [illegible]will write a little too, as well as her mother_ [illegible] I would hardly know any of the children now, and I am sure they would
