My dearest Ruthy:
I have a little time left before going to the boat and am going to write you a few lines
to receive tomorrow morning.
Went to Schenectady and got back to Albany at four. Have spent the time since at
J. B. Lyon Co’s and had dinner with Charlie Winchester at the Ten Eyck. Have an order in
my pocket for 100 envelopes from Lyon and expect to get some business from General
Electric at Schenectady.
You’ve had a fine day in the country. I did hate to leave you this morning. I presume
you took a detour going home and have made the most of the cool refreshing air out of
Dearest, I am going to bed about 9:30 and my last thoughts shall be of my wife and
family. Ruthy, I love and honor you for your great courageous heart and high minded
devotion to the substantial ideals in life. For these virtues and others like them I love you
and for nothing else.
Can’t write more now as I must hurry to boat. Good night dearest of all girlies. Kiss
all the babies and accept many for yourself from
