Monroe, Louisiana January 14, 1889 to Hotel Dieu, New Orleans, Louisiana
William Abram O’Kelly Sr. to his wife Georgiana Van Emburgh O’Kelly
We have heard nothing from you since your letter of the 10th. I hope you are still improving.
I took the children to the show yesterday. They enjoyed it a good deal although there was very little to see. It was Sunday but there was a good many people there.
Fred Millsaps* died Saturday night. He has been sick for sometime.
We are all doing tolerable well all join me in sending you love.
Your affectionate husband
William A. O’Kelly
