[Dear Willie:]

I had hoped that May Walling, had according to your and my advice, decided to go to the sanitarium and remain there to take the business of nursing. She cannot do this and remain at home. I am sorry. Why did she not write to me and say something about the matter? I supposed she was doing just as I advised her to do. I think that is the only way she can get the practical knowledge she so much needs. 6LtMs, Lt 105, 1890, par. 1

I have mailed a letter to Dr. Lindsay in reference to her giving May special advantages and I hope May will spend her whole time at the institution, for this is the only way she can get the knowledge. 6LtMs, Lt 105, 1890, par. 2

I have an idea I shall come home soon and leave some of the family here, as they wish to stay longer. If I can safely remain in Battle Creek [I] will do so. I want to see you and the children. 6LtMs, Lt 105, 1890, par. 3

Mother.
