Dear Son Willie:

There are three young men going through to Battle Creek from Texas. The climate here is so mild you will have to see that they have good rooms and warm clothing. These are all-important men and must have suitable attention. Do not fail to do all for them that you can. This is a country where peonies grow as naturally as acorns. Do not fail to give special attention to these men who come to you from Texas. 3LtMs, Lt 57a, 1878, par. 1

If Sister Booth has not left for Texas yet, have her bring my flagroot. But I hope to find her at Denison, as I shall reach there today. Brother King will visit you at Battle Creek. I wish he and Millie Severns, or some other good girl, would strike up a bargain. There are no real good girls here. 3LtMs, Lt 57a, 1878, par. 2

I cannot write. The cars joggle so. 3LtMs, Lt 57a, 1878, par. 3
