My dear Madam.

When I read in the Delineator of Jan. number. of your love of giving and the power to make others happy. When I finished I bowed down on my knees and thanked God for such a noble woman and that He had blessed you so wonderfully

P.S. This letter has been to the D. Letter office. Will try again at Palo Alto Cal.

Tears filled my eyes when I read how you had turned the covers back, for your precious Boy.

I am a mother of three children two boys and one girl I thought who but a kind and loving mother thinks and cares for our own so tenderly.

We are sufferers of the great storm of Sep. 8th lost everything and gave what few things that wer [sic] saved like betting [sic - bedding] & dresses & clothing to others that had none.

We are thankfull [sic] our lives were spared hoping the work that is for us to do, will be done as He the giver of all good intended it should.

Trusting I have taken but little of your time.

I want to be named as one of your many admirers.

Mrs. W. E. Maxson
