Dear Miss Fletcher
I thought I would write few lines to you to tell you how we are getting along. I am not well I have been sick since I have been home, your little name sake is well, last week we move up to our place when we went up I lost all her clothes and I am feeling so sorry about it. Geo. bought some lumber to make a little Cottage for us, he paid $.100. dollars for it. Doctor Hensel bought the lumber for him and Geo. paid it all out of his payment, and the lumber man said he dont know why doctor took $5. dollars out of his money. he is having hard time with him. [[strikethrough]] he dont what [[/strikethrough]] and he is not satisfied about it I with doctor, the way he done. he went to Mrs. Wade and ask her if she would lend him some money to paid the Carpenter and she did not lone him any so he dont know what to do. so he said he wants to know if you would help him. We haven't any things for house keeping so we would like you to help us. if you can we would be very glad to have you help us.
