My Own Darling,

  I have just received 

your wire and I can hardly

realize that Dad has left 

us. I have written to Ma but

words of sympathy seem so cold

when written. Dad seemed so

much better when I saw him

last and even though I

knew the end might come

suddenly I didn't believe it

would. What a loss it is to

Ma. May the love & sympathy 

of all the Family comfort &

sustain her in her loss. I 

cannot write much Darling

but you know how much
