My Darling

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
