3 My dear Mary
5 I was so disappointed that you didn't come yesterday afternoon. I
6expected you even in the morning as Fan said she had asked you to come
7to spend the day & bring the children, if you were able. I am afraid
8old Mrs Sauer must be very ill & you have had no time to think of
9anything. I'll come on ?I'm Tuesday evening if I can: if not Cron is
10sure to come. I get so tired still It was so nice to see you, dear.
11I'm afraid you'll all feel I'm I'm dead & alive. I don't feel able to
12take any interest in any thing. I'll be glad when I get back to my
13house work; but I think the change is doing me good.
15 Good bye dear one do come & see me if I cant
17^come on Tuesday. I hope you are having a good day today
19 Yours ever dear
20 Olive^
