Dear Sister,
James has kept all your letters
in reserve reply sure few weeks about 2 months
[-----?] James told me they had got in their
office a beautiful cottage with fruit flowers
on 7th Avenue 166th street that he could get
at very low rent or for any one he wishes until
it would be sold that might be in one month or
not until May off course having whole cottage
would be quite a change and I said we would
move to it ourselves
James did not care for it so much as I did.
When we moved I did not imagine it was such a
very large house we only furnish up about
same appartments as we left we get four papers
every week same address will do as houses in
107th street are Mr. Armstrongs own property
we might return same house we left. James
says Mr. Armstrong bought 4 grand houses in 110th
Friday last. if there are any vacancies in any
over there we will move there when this house
is sold we are [fond?] East Side.

James and I are quite well hopes
yourself- Mr Mc Shane
and family are

With fond love from
