Jan. 15 - 1903

Dear brother John

Seeing I sent you the news of the Telegram, I thought I had better enclose this letter which I think explains it. Yesterday, I received a long letter from Annie L. dated Jan. 6. with this one I send you enclosed, which you see is dated Jan. 9. she must have been taken suddenly ill on the 8th. and her letter lying addressed, and ready to send the telegram which we would receive before the letter came.
Anna Eastman tells me she has had such an attack before when she has been over-doing. and I know that she has been


doing so lately, from her letter written to me on Decr 20. The time that Anna E. tells me about she was not nearly so ill but I think it must have been something of the same kind. and when she was ill about the middle of Decr and had to be brought home from church it must have been the same.
We are all pretty well here., the weather is beautiful, white frost in the morning and sunshiny days just now.


Scappoose, Ore.
