4 My dear old Sister
6 I was grieved to hear from Cron on his return that you were looking so
7thin. What is the matter? Have you had influenza?
9 If ever feel you really need change to dry up country air, come to me.
10We will have a happy time together. There will always be room for you
11in my tiny house. If you chest is really bad, dear, don’t play with
12it. Stop it off before things get fixed. I am sending you a little of
13my asthma remedy mixed; because I know one is willing to try things if
14they are ones hand when one does not feel inclined to take the trouble
15of ordering them unless one knows by experience they help.
17 Good bye dear.
18 Olive
