Sarah [Muir Galloway]
Jan - 12 - 1903
My dear brother John
I received a telegram this morning from Mr Stone the Baptist minister saying that sister Annie was "much improved and in no immediate danger". it was dated Dan. 11-5-7. She must have been very seriously ill.
In my last letter from her dated Decr 20 she said she would not be able to go to [illegible]ams funeral as she was recovering from a serious illness and was not strong yet. I said yesterday that I must write her, for I feared she must be sick again as we had not heard from her lately. You have likely heard from her too. but I thought
would let you know.
I will not write further just now as Mr Eastman is waiting to start for Scappoose, I had to get Anna to open my telegram this morning. I did not know what to expect, it is so short a time since we received that sad, sad one from Chicago. Annie is pretty well again but oh! so lonely.
