TranscriptMy dear Annie

I scarcely know what to say to you first
of all I will thank you for your kind and
loving Letter. I felt so thankful that you
had reached your home Safly [safely?] but
doubtless you remembered the promise of him
who said fear not for I am with thee. but
you did not say you were not coming back
and I have all the time been looking for you
one day when your Uncle Robert was here he said
he thought it was the Cholera Scare that was
keeping you back but I am begining [beginning?]
to think that it is your resolution that is
giving way disregarding the admonition of
friends but I do not blame you for such
dererminations [determinations?] generally
prove futile at one time of life or another
you will very likely before [this?] have
heard that Caleb is married to a young Lady
of Farmington her name was Myra Green she is
a very pleasant Girl and is 23 years old. I
have seen Mrs Miller several times lately
and she told me that you were not comming
[coming?] back she said on of the Girls at
the Asylum told her so. Millie Shane died about
the first of September under very painfull [painful?]
circumstances but I cant repeat them here
Mr Simpson and Calvin Cady are at work on
that barn they were building when you
were here I hope they will get through this
week Edla park was married last week to a
dr. somebody you will remember that I told you
she had gone to Grace Hospital to Nurse in
order to become a first class Nurse herself
well she got her diploma and went to a
Situation at Ann Arbor as head nurse and I
Suppose it was there that she met the
Gentleman she has married they have gone to
live in denver Mr Luther Stanly [Stanley?]
is in a dying condition and I am very much
afraid without any hope in the future riches
dont avail there at all - oh annie keep
in the love of Christ and then whatever
changes you may have to pass through he
will be with you (lo I am with you always)
I wish I could send you some Asylum news
but very likely you hear that from those
that are there Jenny and Edith and Iva
Mrs Bell and Mrs Crawford all desire to
be remembered to you
Mr Jackson myself and Caleb all Send our
love hoping to hear from you at your

Your friend A Jackson
