My dear friend,

I do not know your address nowadays but I feel that I must write you a few words - hoping they may find you. Our dear Janet has been in Heaven with her Saviour, her father and her Aunt Kate for more than a week. What these days have been to her troubled spirit we cannot tell - yet after years of bondage and suffering, she is released. She loved you and yours and I want you to know. With all my sorrow, I must thank God, as Merrill said, "It was agony to see her suffering and not be able to help her." I cannot write, for I am not well, but I feel sure that you will write me a word.
With love and sweet remembrance of your affection for my children, I am your friend.

Julia M. Moores
