Dear Willie:

I received your letter and your request in regard to Addie. She is a good hand with children. In regard to her coming to Colorado, I do not think she had better wait until her studies are through. The children need her now, and if Mary is failing, I would not advise you to leave the dear child. This, that you have written me, is a great affliction to me. I feel distressed, but the Lord’s ways are not our ways. I wish I could pass through Colorado, but the time is so limited I think I must go directly to Fresno. 6LtMs, Lt 86, 1890, par. 1

I will send the copies of the matter you mention to Africa; one copy was sent, but I know not to whom. I had more matter to send, which I will send to Battle Creek to have copied and forwarded at once to Africa. 6LtMs, Lt 86, 1890, par. 2

Addie has not seen the letters you sent to her for she was and is at school. She will be home shortly and will speak for herself. 6LtMs, Lt 86, 1890, par. 3

Mother.
