Miss Emma Davis
Angels Abode
Ever dear friend,

I received your most welcome and [missing] received missive yesterday eve. I had begun to think you had forgotten to write to me or else was sick. Willie said you told him you would write in a few days, but I must confess I was getting a little impatient. But I can truly say I was more than paid for waiting on reading your most precious letter. Most assuredly, I will excuse your writing, for you write better even now than any of my other correspondents. I could read your letters in the dark (almost).
