My dearest Jenny
Your letter of the 14th came
last night. I cannot imagine whay it
should take them so long as the mails are
now running regular. Our snow which had
nearly left us has commenced falling again
with every prospect of sleighing.
I have not the least objections to your visiting

or Libbie
Birth: 1835-09-04 Death: 1892-02-25
if you think a change will
tend to help you gain strength as I really
hope it may. Should you go to Lues for any
length of time however I think it would be
best either for you to pay your board or
at least beare part of the housekeeping expenses
as you family would be as large as her
I enclose a little letter for Nelly
Birth: 1862-09-11 Death: 1921-10-05
. Tell her
that Papa thinks of her very often
Your
Will
