Dear Mary:

I received your letter and was somewhat relieved. Do what you please with the old carpet. I will erelong send you a better one. It is a poor, worn-out, old dud. 5LtMs, Lt 71, 1888, par. 1

I had rather a sorry time yesterday with heart difficulty; could not attend meeting or sit up much of the time. Am some better today. 5LtMs, Lt 71, 1888, par. 2

I will say four flatirons were taken to St. Helena. One pair was the heaviest kind; the second was lighter, nearly new. These were taken to the laundry. I would like one of those heavy ones. You may keep the other three; if you need all four, keep them. 5LtMs, Lt 71, 1888, par. 3

It is cold here and frozen, but this will not last long. We are all as well as usual. I am pleased to hear from you. 5LtMs, Lt 71, 1888, par. 4
