 My Own Darling,

              I am glad to hear that you

received my letter of the 8th. It was impossible

that Dad should leave us without scores

of people writing their appreciation to you all.

No I cannot imagine the new order. I am

glad Dad was able to leave his house

in order in spite of many changes in 

the family + it is especially good to

hear that Nell will have a nest 

egg as a reserve. May it gather more

for her as the years go by. It is good

also to know that "Cousin" Alfred was

such a help. Ta very much for the

snap Mary took. Tell Ma I shall be

very pleased to be a greater attraction

but on the other hand you + Kenneth

would I am sure prove sufficient. I

am pleased to get such a good reports

of her  + Harry also. Cheer up Sweetheart

it was a terrible blow but you

know you are the cheery one of the

family and everyone brings their

troubles to you so it is your duty

to be cheerful. You are a wonderful

tonic to me + I have several times

noticed that you have the same effect

on other people. Perhaps they will let

me come home soon to look after you

+ then things will be much better.

Remember that Kenneth + I love you very

dearly + always want you + want to

be your joy + comfort.

  I had a letter from Harris the other
