Sunday Morning
May 1902

My dear Sue,
	I can't tell you how terribly shooked I was yesterday evening when I got Kate's 
note telling me of Alec's horrible death. It seems too awful, I can't realize it is 
true. I do feel so sorry for you all. Poor Cousin Jennie, it seems so hard for her 
to have to hear this. She has seen so much sorrow. Everyday I think more and more 
what a horrible place this world is. Let me hear from you as soon as you can write. 
You know I would go to you if I could, but I can't leave home. Next to Papa, your 
family are nearer to me than anybody else in this world. 
					With love and deepest sympathy, 
						Affectionately Mary
