Sadie had a hard time but it dident last near so long as before. last evening Sadie and Louise went out for a walk and came home and in the night was taken with labor pains but dident say anything untill I went home to Breakfast & after Breakfast I went back to the [illegible] house and reported for my day off. then I went and got the Dr. and at noon I went after him again and the Nurse and me soon done buisness up. The Dr used cloriform to but no instruments.

The Nurse is a Mrs Todd. lives next Street to us so you see we dident have far to go after her.

We would liked to have had you but we dident know if we could depend on you or not at that time as you might be on a case and be making more money than you would here. but we would [illegible] have paid you come

This Nurse charges $1.00 per day and if every thing goes well we will soon fire her

Now Edith the first time you come to Cleveland be sure and come and see you nice little Niece Aunt Edith

I must close and go mind the Baby. let us hear from you often. I will keep you posted how Sadie & Baby are getting along

Love from all Baby to [illegible]
