Eau Claire May 3/ 59
Dear Brother and Sister.
 Long and anxiously had I been looking for a letter from you, at last one
come, and now I am going to write answer it immediately so that you may follow
my example and not have to wait untill I get almost out of patience and think
you have forgotten me or are sick.  My health is somewhat better than when
I last wrote you but am not good for much yet, still I am thankful to be
as well as I am, do not expact to ever be as well as I have been, if I can
only do my own work, with what little Smead would hlep me, it is all I ask,
I will be contented, your advise in reagrd to taking care of myself is good
and I shall endeavor to do so, and I assure I do have to rest often time
a day, in order to get along
