My dear Sister:-
Your letter received this A.M. and was very glad indeed to hear from you, but judging from it you had not rec'd my last letter saying I had not heard of Chas death untill many days after he was dead & buried. and
when I got your telegram it was to late to do any thing that you spoke of and I was so shocked and hurt by not knowing of it that I did not even send a letter condolance or flowers and I have not been over yet, for Ma and [?] have got them all done [?] [?] and of course
the telegram I read about his days after it was sent. I Got a postal from the Western Union. They or you had it directed to 134 Prospect St. instead of 134 Chestnut Is it any wonder I don't get my mail? and you are perfectly welcome to come here and investigate if you so desire. The reason I am boarding here now is because the lady on Chestnut moved away out to Glenville and Mrs Gillette & I could not go way out there. Oh! I am not such a dispirate [disparate] character as you & the rest of my folks are trying to make me. If you want to know it. I believe Chas was sick 9 or 10 days only.
you having a cough doctor for it and get well for [illegible] sake. One in the family is enough.
I see my dear Chas every day and I love him, and it has always been him I love. How would you like for us to come to see you in a couple of wks [weeks]?
I don't suppose though that you would welcome us? The weather here is as warm as Aug. again. [illegible] He has gave me three solitares diamond rings. Each are nearly the size of a pea and one turquoise surrounded by 13 chips diamonds.
Well I must close but hope to hear from you
often and quit working so hard [mind?], and get your rest. I will now say by by.

Think of Ma or [Sisters?] not leting [letting] me know. I never will forgive them, never. I heard [illegible] Luz has "Nervous Prostration." I'm so sorry to hear of Frank's death. The poor bride. No, I have not yet been to see any doctor.
I am [illegible] awfully to hear of
