Dear Children:

With weak and trembling hand I write you. I am growing stronger every day. My cough is the same—very annoying and wearing. 3LtMs, Lt 22, 1882, par. 1

I received Willie [White’s] note that he would come Thursday. I will meet him Thursday noon. I hope he will not delay as there are many things which need immediate decision. 3LtMs, Lt 22, 1882, par. 2

We have taken possession of the half-acre by paying down ten dollars. The man made his own terms. 3LtMs, Lt 22, 1882, par. 3

I wish I could see the family. I want to see Mary [White] and baby. 3LtMs, Lt 22, 1882, par. 4

I wish Mary Chinnock would come, and that she and Sister Ings could fix us up some. Sister Ings cannot go ahead alone, but I leave it with you to do as you think best. I can walk up and down stairs now very well. 3LtMs, Lt 22, 1882, par. 5
