Dear Son Willie:

I have written a few lines to Brother Starr in response to a letter he has written to you. I thought it not best to send it to you as you will, of course, see him and learn all about matters. I received the letter from Philip Wessels and sent it to Melbourne. You will be gratified, not only to read the promise of money donations, but that he is in so good a state of mind spiritually. Oh, that letter did me so much good! 8LtMs, Lt 128, 1893, par. 1

We are very much alone. My head troubles me—is not in good working order. But I rode out Sunday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. The two last days was out all the forenoon, and the air revived me. I seemed to be exhausted—my head and my heart tired. 8LtMs, Lt 128, 1893, par. 2

It seems so nice to be quiet once more. But this does not mean that I do not want you. I miss you much every day and will be so pleased to have you return. I see the hand of God in this money being donated from Africa. Now we can see a school established in some favorable location. 8LtMs, Lt 128, 1893, par. 3

Anna Ingels wrote a letter to you and a letter came written to her from Cora Chapman in regard to Pitcairn. Will take a copy before sending it to you. 8LtMs, Lt 128, 1893, par. 4

I have determination to rest. No mail from America. Cannot tell when it will come. I do wish they would send our mail here to New Zealand, but I will be patient. Much love from your 8LtMs, Lt 128, 1893, par. 5
