Dear Willie:

I wrote a line yesterday but did not send it. Found I was too late. The stove came last night. Elder Daniells went to the wharf to see about it. The man you engaged said he would bring it up that very evening, night before last, but it came only last evening. There was, we found, no pipe. We had plenty of pipe and it ought to come. Did you send any pipe with the stove? Please let us know. We are going to try today to find pipe or get it made. Do not know how we shall succeed. May has done remarkably well with this colonial oven. She has made no complaint, but we know it is hard work to cook over such a fire. 7LtMs, Lt 73, 1892, par. 1

The man you engaged to bring up our goods charged twelve shillings, but decided to take ten. 7LtMs, Lt 73, 1892, par. 2

Elder Daniells has been having a pull with neuralgia. There has been diligent use made of footbaths and fomentations, May assisting him as nurse. I am doing some better today. I have not felt very well for a few days, quite crippled up. 7LtMs, Lt 73, 1892, par. 3

Will you please send by Elder Tenney, envelopes—large and small—with the imprint upon them. I hope you will take good care of yourself. When shall we be likely to see you again? 7LtMs, Lt 73, 1892, par. 4

Mother.
