Dear daughter Mary:

Brother Harris will take this line to you. We need our large flat irons. They are the largest size and Sister Lockwood says they are in the laundry at [the Rural] Health Retreat. Will you see that they are sent down when someone comes to Healdsburg? 5LtMs, Lt 51a, 1888, par. 1

We are all well. W.C.W. [W. C. White] has just left for Oakland, to be gone till next week. He is well as usual. We do not forget you, and we pray for you every day; we have earnest petitions ascending from all of the family in your behalf, and we believe the Lord is working for you. We have confidence in the promises of God. Cling to these promises. 5LtMs, Lt 51a, 1888, par. 2

Dear Mary, be of good courage in the Lord. He will not leave nor forsake you. Much love to your mother and Sister McOmber. 5LtMs, Lt 51a, 1888, par. 3

Mother.

If there is anything that we can do for you, just let us know and we will do it gladly. 5LtMs, Lt 51a, 1888, par. 4

Mother.
