April 6, 1898
From: William A Gray
To: Ruth Barrell
Just a line or two, my own Dearest Ruthy and then to bed, to make up some of that
hour of last light which we used so delightfully together. What lovely times we do have
Ruthy, don’t you think so. I found some things quite new in your letter received this
morning and one not so pleasingly so either. I am glad to have found you entirely
recovered from your slight spell of indisposition, on Tuesday.
Take good care of yourself, Dear, and don’t ever do anything you do not feel
physically disposed to do, just to please me, won’t you dear?
Will come up Saturday as usual and shall be glad to find you at the station — if
everything is convenient and pleasant. Not finding you will go home, and be with you a
Goodnight Dearest Ruthy, and best wishes for your health. I will retire. For kisses I
will find some blossoms tomorrow, heap some upon it, and enclose it to you.
With much love, I am
As ever yours
Wm A Gray
