Abstract

"I have not yet recovered from my sickness and I find it very difficult to write, so I will dictate answers to your letters. The one of Oct. 22nd sent to me in Europe, has just been received [unclear] your letter of Nov. 22nd, written after we arrived home and your last letter of Dec. 2nd, giving me all the news up to date, for all of which I am much obliged. ### Father gave me a great many details in regard to the workings of the factory and the business in general and so far as I have been able to judge, they seem to be going along as well as we could expect. ### As I shall be with you in Adrian very soon I will not attempt to write much of anything concerning the Edison matters; there are some things, however, that I have told father in a letter just written him, which he will probably explain to you and which no doubt you will be glad to hear. ### Father told me something about Mr. Caruth’s troubles, and I am very sorry to hear of his address, I would be very glad to send him a little present of money, which no doubt, under the circumstances, will be acceptable. ### With love to all, and hoping to see you soon, I remain." Yours affectionately, [unsigned]
