Portage Sept 22d 1886

Dear Daniel

Your communication of the 13th [last?] is most gratifying to me

I earnestly hope nothing will occur to be a hindrance to your coming I shall be so glad to meet you again once more

I am pleased to know that all your family are well

We are all in our usual health here

Davids family are well but very few in number,

-only Annie and Willis being at home, but Carrie is expected home in a week or two from the north where she has been teaching for a year.

I expect all of your family are attending school now escept one perhaps.

Probably you know that Annies health has very much improved during her sojourn in _Cal_ John has had a young man with him all summer in training to take care of the ranch he hopes to be more at liberty very soon

With kindest regards to Emma _ yourself and the children, I close hoping you will let us know if any hindrance occur at the time you propose coming,

As ever affectionately Mother


Portage [Wisc.]
