Sometime, dear1, let me know, has Jessie 3 enough to get along comfortably. I send her a check from time to time, but perhaps I should send her a check for, say M fifty dollars every month at least until this $5,0004 is used up. I know Douglass5 meant to provide for her, but he was puzzled as to how to do it—afraid she would "do some fool thing" as he expressed it.

She has been plucky and has never asked for help.
