[Letter to Mrs William Sturges]


29th(July?), 1895.

     A glorious time to you, dear Mother, and I am sure this letter will 

find you in all health.  Many thanks for the $50 you sent; it went a long 


     We have had such a nice time here. Two ladies came up all the way 

from Detroit to be with us here. They are so pure and good.  I am going 

from the Thousand Island to Detroit and thence to Chicago.

     Our class in New York is going on, and they have carried it bravely 

on, although I was not there.

     By the by, the two ladies who have come from Detroit were in the 

class, and unfortunately were mighty frightened with imps and other 

persons of that ilk.  They have been taught to put a little salt, just a 

little, in burning alcohol, and if there is a black precipitate, that 

must be the impurities showing the presence of the imps.  

How ever, these two ladies had too much fright from the imps.  It is said 

that these imps are everywhere filling the whole universe.  Father Leggett 

must be awfully downcast at your absence, as I did not hear from him up 

to date.  Well, it is better to let grief have its way. So I do not 

bother him any more.

     Aunt Joe Joe must have had a terrible time at sea. All is well that 

ends well.

     The babies^ must be enjoying their stay in Germany very much.  My 

shiploads of love to them.

     We all here send you love, and I wish you a life that will be like 

a torch to generations to come.

Your son,


^Hollister and Alberta-then at school in Germany
