My Beloved Angee,
Since mailing your letter this morning I have received yours of Sep. 23rd & am very thankful you have had some nice rides with your dear sisters – am also very thankful to hear that dear Arundel is better & hope his new dwelling may be more healthy than the one he has to leave – am very sorry to hear of Dr Harper's accident – the paper is not yet to hand but suppose it was a carriage accident and trust Mrs Harper may recover the shock. I forgot to ask you to send dear Angie the 12/ per month – kindly do this during my absence – with regard to my poor brother John I do trust that God in His infinite mercy might be pleased to restore his soul's communion with Himself if only a moment before he leaves this poor sin stained world – my faith in the sovereign grace and mercy of God holds him up as the Lord's who is able to save to the very uttermost all that come unto God by Him. Trust your cough may yield to the change of medicine and if you see Dr Harper again kindly express my heartiest sympathy with him for the mercy that preserved his own life and the hope that his dear wife may be recovered too. Much Love and believe me my darling wife ever your very affectionate Husband.
There is a supplementary mail this afternoon so that this may reach you with the one posted this morning.
