Dear Husband:

I put a letter in the office yesterday for you and told you that we were all well; but Monday night our child was taken sick in the night and all day yesterday was very sick—dangerous. Today not so much distressed but he is not out of danger. He is a very sick child. I thought you had ought to know this and then you could do as you pleased about returning. 1LtMs, Lt 15, 1860, par. 1

Sister Benedict was with me all day yesterday. Sat up with the child all night and is with me today. 1LtMs, Lt 15, 1860, par. 2

We prayed for it last night. It was relieved immediately but he is still a very sick child. 1LtMs, Lt 15, 1860, par. 3

In haste. 1LtMs, Lt 15, 1860, par. 4
