City (Morganton, NC)
My dear Friend,
I was wanting to send you a message that I'd look for you Monday to spend the day with
Mrs. Winston and attend the M. meeting. When Jimmie Wilson came in and told me you had fallen
from the porch at Mrs. Bettie's and your leg was broken. I was so distressed and phoned to
D[uncan][Cameron's] and she [Claudia] said your ankle was sprained. I'm so thankful you are
with Jimmie and Bettie. O, how the dear Lord does work so tenderly with us. May He give you
strength and grace to bear all you may have to suffer.
I'm so disappointed in not having the visit. Mrs. Winston speaks to us of her visit to
the Holy Land. She was with me yesterday. I'm feeling better but the sun is too hot for me
to venture out. I'll try to get some of my friends to drive me out. I've been wanting to go
to see Mrs. McCormick and Bettie. Love to them. You've fallen in good hands.
God bless you with His comforting presence is the prayer of your loving friend.
