Such terrific wind am afraid windows may [push in ??]


Such a storm of rain last night that I did not get your letter posted, so I am glad to add that we had word from Doctor to-day, "Miss McQuesten has been quieter to-day (Wednesday) and has eatten[Sic] her nourishment fairly well." To me, this is very encouraging, as she had eatten nothing for days and we were powerless to make her.

Have been writing Ida Walker 4 home, I have taken into my confidence to send her some flowers on her birthday next Monday. Have not yet heard if we may write her.

With fondest love
Very earnestly
Your Mother
