1880 Letters

December 8, 1880 letter to Sarah Keith from Hiram Crawford Jr.

December 8, 1880

To: Sarah Keith, Galesburg, MI

From: Hiram Crawford, Jr., Chicago, IL

Hiram is writing in response to a letter from his sister, Sarah, that their Mother’s general health has declined further. Although not surprised, he had hoped that his mother’s mind would remain clear to the end, but this seems to not be the case. He is also telling Sarah that if their Mother must remain in her home until the end, that “we must and will help you in every way that is feasible.” He would like to visit, but doesn’t feel that he can afford it at the moment unless it becomes necessary. He is also acknowledging Sarah’s anxiousness over some issue involving her daughter, Nancy.
