Dr Mag


            I recd your letter of 16th inst. / this evening. I had heard of Gussies / illness & was very anxious and very / sorry for her. I am heartily glad / that she is better. I just got / home from Washington where I / was for a few days on duty.  I / met a great many acquaintances there / none whom you know except / John Leech who seems to take a / great interest in me. Give my / best love to Maggie and I enclose / the picture of her estimable uncle / for her. Tell her if she dont like to / Kiss it with the mustache on she can / have it shaved. Mary Jane wrote / that Dr Logan & his wife had been in Freeport / and that the Dr said that Bob Moore / and Bill Logan were in Salem now. /


            Had you heard it. s Remember / me to all the folks! Ben Huey / wishes to be remembered. /


Please write to me soon & tell me if you want any money /

Yours affectionately
