Dear Brother Lockwood:

I have just received and read yours and your wife’s communication to me. I am always glad to hear from you. We are usually well and busy, so very busy. You can hardly tell how busy, for we have not been where we have received only a monthly mail, and know not the pressure and rush at these times. I cannot tell why your letter was so long reaching us, but I suppose it was chasing us around. We have it at last. I am rather perplexed about one matter. Brother Leininger was to settle the interest money on the notes due you, as he has purchased my Healdsburg property and should settle these notes. I will write to him in reference to the matter. Henceforth you had better call on him. I think that is the only right way to do. 9LtMs, Lt 50a, 1894, par. 1

In regard to selling, do so by all means, and find you a little home somewhere. If Brother Leininger cannot pay interest and wishes to give up the place, I am perplexed to know what I will do about it. I have written him to write me something definite at once. If you sell out, do not be in a hurry to buy again, until you know it is all right to do so. I want very much to hear from you after you sell. 9LtMs, Lt 50a, 1894, par. 2

In much love. 9LtMs, Lt 50a, 1894, par. 3
