My Dear Father1

Here is a check which will get the boys4 started if they decide to go on with their plan. If they change their minds you can deposit this check and send me a draft for the same amount. I do hope the boys will get comfortably settled at some congenial work5. I am very busy just now and am a good deal worried and perplexed about my work. When you write send your letters to the New York6 office7, they are always forwarded promptly. With a heart full of love to you all and many good wishes to the boys

Lovingly Willie
