Present my kindest regards to your wife and children. I re-
ceived two letters from my wife among those you sent to me
(late as 9th inst.) she and my children very well. I left [W. P.]
Ballinger and sister at St. Catharines. His health has much
improved; got a letter from him today. They will leave on to-

I shall go to Toledo from here, and I expect I shall go from
there to St. Paul via Chicago. I may go on to Duluth. I have
