[First draft of letter, in note-book #59] (58)

Martinez, California,
Oct. 2, 1900

[Mrs. Eliza Munro,]
Box 45,
Glenside. Pa.

Dear Madam:

I was very glad to learn so much of my father's life in Hamilton through your kind letter of the [illegible] ult., for which I thank you and would like to hear more. Long ago I stopped several days in your beautiful Hamilton.
After leaving Kansas City Joanna [Brown] moved to Portage, thence to Philadelphia, where the family have lived for many years. Her two girls are well grown up, the eldest about 18. Her address is Mrs. Walter Brown.
Mother died in Portage years ago. My sister Anna is still there. Mary (Mrs. Willis Hand) is in Kearny, Nebraska. Sarah (Mrs. David Galloway), Margaret (Mrs. John Reid), and my brother David are with me here. Daniel, the youngest of the boys, is practicing medicine in Lincoln, Neb.
With thanks, I am,

Very truly yours,

J. M.
