My dearest Ruthy:
Had plenty of time for the 8:22 at market St, and have had a busy day here. Have 2
orders in my pocket amounting to $720.00 and more promised. Have one other prospect to
see so will have to stay over night.
Met Mr Bruning here with a business associate at 5:15 and they are out meeting an
engagement, to return soon and I am snatching the opportunity to write you a few lines.
I shall miss you very much tonight. It seems that you and even the expensive old
house were never so attractive as now to me and I could spend the rest of my days there
without wishing to move.
I hope you have had a pleasant day. It has been showering here and is hot and
sticky. Sorry not to have an opportunity to undress and bathe Edsie & Florence tonight.
Kiss all the young ones and with much love and many kisses for your own dear self, I am
