My dear Jim,
What on earth is the matter that you don't write and tell me something?
It is now two weeks since I got your letter saying you would
be back at the end of the week. From that time have I been patiently
waiting for your return. Not even a few lines just to break this cruel
suspense. Well might you know at this one time in our lives that I
would worry about your absence, but if things have not gone for
you as you wished, why not let me know? Did you not know a long
time ago that I would try to make it easier for you if possible?
Now the time for my leaving these people is very near and I must
know something from you before I will make any further plans, so
answer this at once and say when you expect to be here. Mrs. B has been real sick, saw her last night and she looked badly.
Do wire or write soon as you can and tell me what the trouble is
as I am and will be just as faithful to you in your troubles as I would
be in prosperity only don't keep me any longer waiting to know just
what is wrong. I am worried half to death since you left, so don't
know what is coming next
Now I am
as ever your faithful
Annie xx.
