mention it, but dear
May you know I would
not under any condition
want you to give him
up if you care to
retain him. I have
three faithful Chinese
boys - Joe, Wing, and
Charley, and had I not
been touched to the heart
by Kees devotion to me
would not have been so
indiscreet as to say what
I did. You are to keep
him if you need him.
He is faithful trusting
and affectionate. I sent
him away because he
became quarrelsome.
I want you to deal frankly

with me dear friend and
I leave it to you to
decide the matter, for if you
should give him up, if you
have become attached to him,
I should have a
sorrow that would not let
my heart rest. I love you
dear May and not anything
I shall ever do will
weaken the bond betwixt
us - I have such a contempt
for any one who will entice
a servant away from any one
let alone a dear friend

Hoping you Tim and
Lydia are well and
having a happy summer

I am, as always your
sincere friend
