Feb. Sunday the thirteenth
The first pleasant Sunday for ever so long the family all went down to Salem. found them ver much depressed. They are just beginning to realize what has happened to them. I will be that for a long time + gradually Mattie will grow like a dream to them. They will never forget her but they will learn to think of her without tears
NOTES + EXPLANATIONS
