Washington Aug 6" 75
Dear Daughter
Gracie
I received your
kind letter and was much pleased
to learn that you are well and
having a very pleasant time but
was sorry to hear about the little child
that was so badly injured by the
cars which must have mared the
pleasure of your trip some what
but let us hope. The little one will get
over it and live long to lend happiness
and comfort to the declining years of his parents. Possibly I may come to bring you home but-think by that time the goosberries will be gone.  Cousin Allan must be very war-like to shoot rats in that loose manner.  Aunt Lizzie has not gone to Maryland
