Dear Sister

I just recieved [received?] your
letter to day and was more than
thankful to learn you were well
and that the account of the
disaster was so much exaggerated
then it was quite bad enough.
I am so much surprised to
hear of Miss Grahams death do
not be worried on my account
for I have never felt better
in my life than since I have been
in the City We had a letter from
Willie last week I was very pleased
to hear from him for we had written
several letters and some had been
returned The only objection I can see
to you marraying [marrying?] Willie is
his close relationship it might not prove
fortunate to your offspring
otherwise you can never do better
for Willie is good and kind & true
and should never have to change your
name Besides he is a man that
is sure to be some body that
you feel will not drag you down
and more Still I would like to
have you [with?] me perhaps some
months hense [hence?] but do not
let that influence you nor
sacrifice yourself against
your wishes on my account
We are getting along very nicely
have very pleasant rooms and
go and take a walk when I please
or a ride on the streetcar Mr
Moore is kindness itself I
believe he thinks much more
of me than I do of him
So Mrs Parkinson has got discharged
and in such a manner too you did
not say who her companion was
but I supposed Staples well
(sic) I am real glad you got most
of your things saved for it
costs money to have them
replaced So Alice wanted
you to come and see her is Caleb
married yet. we are having such
nice weather here now only a
little rain there is quite a good
amount of La Grippe in the
City but thank god we
have escaped so far Mrs Small
I believe kept your letter through
carelessness before and did
not forward it So I sorry you
wrote to her but I shall drop
her a line to the effect that
she need not trouble writing
to you Mr Moore may write a
few lines so I will close
this time hoping to hear from
you soon your as ever
Isabella Moore
I have never heard from home since
I wrote to you
