As Mother (Cady, Daniel (Mrs., Fidelia W. Palmer)) (Palmer, Fidelia W. (Mrs. Daniel Cady)) had not the time
to finish this letter I though I would
do so, by writing a few lines. She
has written all about Ruh (Ruth) 's death –
no one can tell how much we miss
her. I don't like to think about it. it
was so very startling. We are in the
midst of cleaning, house turned
upside down, we expect to get some
straightened to day. Mother has two
girls to help, besides Grandma and
I do what we can. The funeral
of Isaac Cheetham (Cheetham, Isaac) was attended
Sunday by Mr Bellamy (Bellamy (Mr.)) . All the
military and fire company were
out. The coffin was sealed up.

Hanley Adams (Adams, Hanley) called here
one day last week. he took your
photograph. The Society were going

PAGE IMAGE to have some framed, he said tell
Rush (Cady, Rush Palmer (Lieutenant)) that he intended to write
to him as soon as he returned to
College (Hamilton College). He is now very busy
working for a classical prize.

We are very anxious to hear
from you and think perhaps there
may be a letter in the office
this morning. Write as often
as you can if only a few lines, just
to let us know how you are.

Hattie Cady (Cady, Hattie) is here yet. she
wishes to be remembered to you –
I haven't time to write more
now though I will write again
soon. Good bye

Eliza Cady (Cady, Eliza) –
