August 7th 1905 -

My Dear Brother John, Wanda & Helen,

I have just received a telegram from May Coleman telling me that Louie died yesterday a.m.
I want to let you all know how deeply I sympathize with you in your bereavement and loss. I know how sad and lonely you will be for I have passed through the same great sorrow. May God bless and comfort you at this time. It is


evening and we have had no further word. The telegram did not find me as it ought as the agent did not know where to find me.
I shall hope to hear from some of you when you feel able to write

With love and sympathy I am affectionately



Pacific Grove, Calif.
