Miss Anna Weir
E M Asylum

Dec 5th 1889

Dear Friend
I received your most welcome
letter and was very much pleased
to hear from you. I am working
out now as you have heard before
this on Crawford, since then we have
moved about a block away on [Hillis?] Ave
I never thought you would have
stayed as long at the Asylum. Mamma
is as well as ever now I have no fear
that she will have to go back there
again but only one above knows
what will happen. Papa seems so
cheerfull [cheerful?] he is like another man-
since Mama came home. I was
out in Southfield about the 1st of-
August. Belle was down at
Miss Taylors then that accounts
for me not seeing her. Sophia
Hall was at Mrs Jacksons then what
has become of her. You know when
I was down there at Mrs Bells -
it was such rainy weather that
I didnt go to see Mrs Jackson
I hope Mrs Jackson wont think it
ill of me for not going to see her
I passed there as I was coming away
but it was rainy and I was in
a hurry so I didnt stop I will write
to Mrs Jackson's as soon as I get
my picture I got them taken Friday
and I will get them Dec 27
Annie will you please give me one
of your photos also one of Belles
If you will send me one of each of
yours and I will send one of mine
to Belle & I think I gave one to you
when I was out before how is the
Law suit of Robert [Virtue?] you
know he is trying to put in a
Bill for work done at Aunt Mary
I have not heard how it came off
yet as I can think of no more
I will conclude
Yours truly
M E Ling
229 [Hillis?] Ave
