Description Dearest Minnie, You do not know how rich I feel in having had your letters from you written [illegible] days the [illegible] however being really only two, as the one of 21st was a continuation of the note of Monday 19th, and the one mailed on morning of 23rd the continuation of the one of the 21st same evening and the next. The one of Monday, 26th, came after I had given up all hope of that Sunday’s letter in the morning, the rest of that mail having come the night before, but this being detained for extra postage. I do not wonder you were too exhausted to write that Sunday night before going to bed. How strongly I hope the Baltimore part of the day’s work resulted in success you know I shall look for the news of the meeting in your next letter with much anxiety. Tuesday A.M. Am so sorry, but this scrap must go as it is, or you will get nothing by this steamer. I stayed indoors the entire day yesterday in order to write you but - you see the result Lovingly yours, Mary E.G.
