Miss Emma Davis
Dearest Friend,

I start my letter "dearest friend" because you are, Emma, the dearest friend I have on earth. I received your most welcome favor about an hour ago, and Oh! Emma, you have no idea how I have looked and longed for that letter. It has seemed an age since I left your house two weeks ago today. In your card to Dock you said you were nearly sick and I was afraid you would be very sick, there being so much sickness in the country and you not very well to begin with.
