[First draft of letter, in note-book #59] (32)
[Mrs. Mary Graydon,
Indianapolis. Ind.] [Jan. '02]
Dear Mrs. Graydon:
How long it is since I nave had a letter or heard from either yourself or Katherine [Graydon]. I had letters from your sisters Mina and Mrs. Moores on receipt of copies of my book, but they were as silent as yourself about you and your girls, making no separate mention of you. The last we heard direct from Katie was by a letter written from Berkeley when she was about, to start for home. Prof. Anderson was at our house on a visit a month or so ago, and he told us she was expected in Berkeley on her way back to her island [Honolulu] school, so we have been expecting her every day. Do write a good long Graydon letter.
Heaven bless you all,
Ever faithfully yours,
Original letter dimensions: 22.5 x 14.5 cm.
