My dear Son Willie:

I have just received your letter written June 15. I am a little surprised. 6LtMs, Lt 94, 1890, par. 1

We arrived home Wednesday night. Thursday or Friday I had Zolinski draw on my account a draft of two hundred and fifty dollars and send at once to you. You certainly ought to have received it, and I have been looking for an acknowledgment of the same. If not received, what does it mean. Shall I send again? 6LtMs, Lt 94, 1890, par. 2

Addie wrote you Thursday of our arrival. I wrote you a few days since, but what is the matter. Are not the letters directed right, or what can detain the letters? I am anxious to know at once. Shall I send another draft? Telegraph and tell me. 6LtMs, Lt 94, 1890, par. 3

Received your package of letters. I am growing stronger. I ride out every day a long time. 6LtMs, Lt 94, 1890, par. 4

All the family are well, but so anxious about you all. Please go to the office and make more critical inquiry. 6LtMs, Lt 94, 1890, par. 5

I thought if the matter was committed to Zolinski’s hands, it would be done all right. I questioned afterwards whether he had sent the draft, he said that he had done. 6LtMs, Lt 94, 1890, par. 6

We think of you all and pray for you. 6LtMs, Lt 94, 1890, par. 7

In much love, 6LtMs, Lt 94, 1890, par. 8
