[June 5, 1904]

My dear brother John,-

Welcome home again! -
Davids letter said - John may be home tomorrow -- and a recent letter from Sarah said "John arrived at home - the 27th" - - The news was glad news - and I was glad enough to shout aloud - and might have done so could you have heard the loudness - and recognized it as mine: as it was I quietly rejoiced, and went about my work



glad that you are home and well,- and glad too that your long long journey was full of profit as well as pleasure - and now I should like to see you and hear you talk - and will hope to - someday - read what you write.
A man was here in Kearney yesterday - who started from Paris to walk round the world - walk unless where obliged to sail. His trip is laid out for him - and he is writing for one or two publisher's - and is to have a


good sum of money - when he successfully reaches Paris- What think you of that way? —
We are all well - and join in love and good wishes to you -
With much love to your family

I remain


Sister Mary
