My Dearest Wilhelmina
I wish I could go to you instead of writing this letter. Papa is in bed where he has been for three
weeks & I cannot leave home. I can hardly (pg-2) realize Alex's awful death though it haunts me day & night.
If I only could tell you how sorry I am feeling for you all & how awfully pained I am. I would go to town
as soon as I can but know when it will be. (pg-3) I have thought so much of your coming home this summer,
but how little I imagined it would be like this. Write to me as soon as you can. With a heart full of love
& sympathy. Ever Affectionately
Refer to the letter: Mary to Wilhelmina [no year] Saturday Nov. 7th for information about Mary.
