My Dear Girl
Would have [written] to you before, but was out of envelopes. We did not hear about Coras accident till you wrote. Have not heard from S-. Think Cora must be better. I feel worried about Lou. I was helpless yesterday could not move my limbs. Took Ethan, Pa and Hannah to move me. Had no use of my limbs but am better today can walk some with a cane. Robert came Thursday expects to be at your place next Monday.
