Dear Annie

I was quite surprised
to get your letter this morn -
I would have written to you
before but had nothing to
write except what you know
Johnnie told me coming down
here that night that he
could not stay if they were there
but I tried to make him
understand why we wished
it to be so but we must
just do the best we can and
trust in God it has been a
[torn] trial from the
beginning and dear knows [torn] [when?]
it will end I have often [torn]
the past couple of weeks [torn]
about what you say about
your old nurse in one way
it would seem the best thing
but of course the Dr.
might have to be there as
well - I have some old
things but have not time
now to get them but if you
could manage to send to post
on Wednesday morn - I will
try to night & collect them
perhaps you wont find them
much use but at any [torn]
you may do just what [torn]
[torn] with them I hope
Johnnie was not any the
worse for the storm on
Sunday I got home here all
right before the snow &
I gave Johnnie my
umbrella to take back
with him Glad to know
the children and all are well
also Gran

I do not know what to
say about having here [her?]
there you will have to
decide that yourself now
[torn] close for the post
[torn] in a few minutes
Yours truly
