Transcription

(Copied from fragment marked Y-7)[Autumn, 1914]Dear Friend:I shall not be able to make the change for tomorrow's proposed visit. I think it had better be indefinitely postponed until all your exacting new home affairs are naturally settled and I have got back some strength lost in gripp and shiver shakes. Then I shall easily find my way to your new home to see the dear faces without reference to such troublesome trifles as beds and sleep, while you can run up here any time in your automobile for sunshine and fresh air and see my grand deodar now glorious in foliage and fruit and hopeful aspiring branchlets quivering with life.Love to all your blessed family and to all who love you.Ever your faithful friend,J.M.(Following fragment of letter at top of same sheet)How fares your brother and family? Have they escaped from the war flames? And have you heard from wonderful, indomitable Dickey later than the date of her letter to me?Prof. Osborn's second son is off to Paris to snatch and fly with his ladylove a la bold Lochinvar. Mrs. Harriman's youngest daughter is in Berlin at a cure, but she is in good hands and tho not a letter or telegram can be got from her her mother says she is not fretting and seems to expect the whole monstrous war to turn in some way to Carol's ultimate advantage.05858
