My Dear Lena:—
It seems a long time since I
heard from you. I recently rec’d

I am good. Laura & Frank enjoyed
seeing it as I did. Asked all
about you & Mr. H— They are in
average good health—Tho.—Frank
is not strong. Looks pale & thin, like
Sister Linda. Celia was here for
short visit in June—More like Celia,
[?] since before Mart’s death. Not
[?] Tell me how you & Ella are
in health. With love, Bal.
