I am glad you wrote me, for it reminds me that you still care
for our old friendship. Present my regards to your wife and
children. I am glad to know that they are well, and that the
world is a pleasant one to them and you.
I am pained to know that Mr. Platt is no more. I am glad
to hear that he spoke of me in his last moments. Your sister
and he will live with me as long as life lasts. Among the most
cherished feelings of my heart are those connected with you and
them. I had friends at College whom I loved but I never was
so intimate with any as you. And as time draws his curtain
closer around me I look back to such days fondly and longingly.
Mrs. Ballinger and Miss Betty are at Michigan University with
the son and daughter, Tom and Laura, and will remain until

keeping in Galveston. Ballinger will spend his Christmas with
them. So you see why I am afloat.
As ever sincerely,
Guy M. Bryan.

if they were so near to us-only three or four hours from our
Lucy is at Cleveland nursing our darling daughter. She was
taken sick at the school she is attending, and we have been anxious
about her. She is now gaining and we hope will be able to re-
turn home with her mother in a few weeks.
My kindest remembrances to your brother & Mrs Bryan
Here’s what’s next.
