on our arrival Saturday night
I found your welcome letter.
We were very much shocked
at the death of Mr Wharton

,
poor Anna
Birth: 1836-03-29 Death: 1919-05-02

to make you a visit, but it
is impossible now as I am
expecting
Unknown to visit us
this week — Will is to be
in New York next week —
We hope to have you home
again this fall — Nelly sends
a great deal of love, and says
that some of the little bits of
white chickens are killed but
Willie says his little brown
ducks are not killed, Willie
sends a kiss.
Mr MacDougall
Birth: 1839-06-14 Death: 1914-05-24
is quite sick
with congestion of the lungs ––
I hope it may be so that
you can spend Christmas
with us this year – The children
and I would like to visit you
after the Holidays—
With much love,
Your affectionate daughter,
Janet
