She was not well until when
Anna went home, but Fred
wi writes was talking &
walking about a short time
before she died– The Dr’s

it a disease of the heart– I
am very glad Anna was home
she had been there only 5 days.

that we can drive home in

with me, as I am getting
impatient to be home–
I send a check for $20– Eliza
may want some money before I
come– Love to all– Tell
