800 SOUTH HALSTED STREET
The town seemed very empty after you had left it in spite of a very busy day. There wasn't a great deal of time between the Union League Committee and the Immigration League at five. I saw your father today, [the] difficulty with his side had quite passed and he was looking very well. Polly and Nellie were cleaning the [page 2] attic and it looked as if all your plans [are] properly being carried out.
I thought of you most of the time through all of the hurly-burly. I do hope the motion and prospect of change was a little comfort. One day is already off of the three weeks and I am sure it will go quickly.
Bless you, Darling, always
"[Forever] thine" J. A.
