December 16, 1860
To: Sarah Keith
From: Platt & Nancy Betts, Omro, WI
Enjoyed their visit with them. Wants them to sell and come out by them to live. Have been sick for four weeks and had to get Prosper to come and take care of them. Received a letter from Hiram who said in his letter that “Helen, my women, sends her love to you.” They didn’t know what he meant and want to know if Sarah knows anything about his being married. Have not seen Aunt Mary. She has moved to some other place in the city.
