Dear Cousin Jane,
Knowing that you are to lecture in Kansas City on the seventeenth of November, I wish to ask you to come to us for the time you will be in our City. It will be such a pleasure to have you in our house again. Let us know when to expect you and Charlie will meet you at the station. I sincerely [page 2] hope you can make us a visit while here. Alice spent the day with me on her return from Rockford, and I enjoyed every moment of the time.
Charlie joins me in love and the hope that we may soon see you.
October first 1902.
