My dear Mr. Thomas:
I am enclosing a check for five dollars from
And one for a similar amount from the All Soul's Sunday School sent by
Both are for the German children.
I had a very pleasant surprise yesterday when Mr. and Mrs. Smedley of Philadelphia and Josh Bailey's brother came to the House. We found that we had many mutual acquaintances and I am sure it was very pleasant for me to be with REAL Friends. The hyms and sermons of the Middle West do not appeal to me at all.
