can there be any love? I answer, where the two above characters reign, the people can't unite. What say you?
More anon,

"Rose Dale"

Mr. J. C. Brewer
Prairie View
My Own dear friend,

Where can I find words to express the appreciation I have placed upon your last letter? As usual, it found me lonely, and what a comfort and consolation it is to be permitted to receive and read cheering messages from one's friends. And among my list of friends, I consider you one of the truest of the number. I have said this so often, doubtless you are tired of hearing it. Still I will risk it just this one more time. Indeed I was glad to hear of your recovery. I hope that you may be blest with perfect health in the future.
