Dear Danl

I gladly received your kind letter and I thought at once that my turn had surely come I am pleased to know that you are all well hoping babys ancle is better We are all well here but sometimes feel the want of David a good deal, The Failure has caused a good deal of unpleasant


feelings, and the affairs are not altogether settled up yet I have had a letter from David telling me all about his work, he thinks his health is better and he enjoys the climate. A few days ago I had a letter from John he wrote that they had been celebrating Davids Birthday by a Turkey Dinner and they had a very pleasant time I am pleased to think that David and Ette have got such a very pleasant home John writes that I am well off to have a


son so near me as Lincoln – Neb but to me it seems a good way off This morning I have received a letter from Dunbar from Mr. Combe I asked him some time ago to get me some Photographs of our old home and he writes that he has got them and will send them soon I am glad you think of making us a visit when a convenient season comes, hoping you will write again and let us know about it We have had a great deal of rainy weather
