"My Dear Mina and Mr Edison: My dear I was very much surprised this morning by receiving a Telegram from you asking where Pa was as I supposed he was with you as had been from the time he could reach your place until Monday morning anyway and might be longer. He left home Friday at 4 o'clock and was a going to stay with you over Sunday that was his plan when he left home at that time. This morning I told the boys about it all and Eddis said he had just received a letter from [ illeg] Miller and he said he had had a short talk [several illeg lines] They must have met the first thing when they started at the [illeg]. I hope you know all about where Pa is and how and all are at home I asked Ira to let ou know right away. Now my dear I do hope you have not worred the least about us now I do hope these few lines will find you well and happy now my dear. You have no strength to spair in sitting up all night and getting lunches and not getting any rest. You need all the strength you have and more to if not now you will want it after a little. Now I do hope you will never do such a thing again it is to hard for you now you must sleep and rest all you can and be as happy as you can don't worry about [anything?] let others get the lunches and [several illeg lines] I wish I was with you now but it will not be very long until I am with you.
