Anna G. Galloway
[Port?] Hope, Wis, January 8, 1883.
Dear Aunt Louie, —
This is to acknowledge the receipt of a certain box which came to us laden with the breath of summer from some sunny land far away from our wintry Wisconsin, and I assure you it was duly appreciated by us all. Will you accept the love and
thanks of your Galloway nieces? Some of the most tender specimens were a little frozen during their long cold journey. I planted the one you marked also the geranium, but it is such cold weather here now that I [deleted: very much] doubt their growing, though I very much hope they will. Those that would press were laid away carefully in books and some day I am going to decorate the house with the evergreens and bright [hemis?]. The last will be a constant
reminder of California and all our folks there. And now hoping that some day we may see each other and get a little more acquainted with one another, I close by subscribing myself
Lovingly, your niece, Anna G. Galloway.
