My Dear Niece and Nephew,
Your kind letter at hand. And it did me so much good to have ^you write as you did, of my sad
loss. For the loss of such a [[underline]] wife[[/underline]] is more than we can estimate. Your
Aunt, as well as the rest of us, enjoyed your short visit so much. She improved for a while, until
about two weeks before she died. The jaundice or blood poison set-in, and the Doctor, said that
tumor pressed on her liver so he could not get action to carry off the [[strikethrough]]
the[[/strikethrough]] bile in its natural course.
Bessie, went back to her school on the 19th, Mary King staid with us until the 26th, May, is
getting about over the sad trial she has just passed through. But we are lonely with your Aunts
vacant chair- I must thank you for your kind offer to assist us in my sad loss- I may have to call
on you in a financial way, as my expenses have been quite heavy.
I hope to hear from you both, as often as you can write us- May, joins in love to you allAffectionately your Uncle,
G.C. Maxwell.
