Additional Details

"I am just home after a week in Boston, and Cape Cod, and find your treasurer's note and check for $20. . . . It is surely very grateful to my feelings in these later days to now and then get this kind of a response to what I may say or do, so greatly in contrast to the older times, when only frowns and scoffs came. Well. When you see anything you wish me to say my say on, just tell me and I will try what I can do."
