Sept. 20th (1878)

Miss Emma Davis,
My very dear friend,

It is with the greatest pleasure I attempt to answer your most interesting and thrice welcome missive which I received late yesterday eve. I had been from home since Monday, at work, and consequently did not receive it as soon as it came, but you may be sure it was gratefully perused and reperused and read again.

Emma, I consider it the greatest pleasure of my life to receive a letter from your fair hands, and be assured I never tire reading them.
