First—Love to you and all, May, Bertha, Grace, Kittie & Harry—Second, sorry to hear your mother has been down sick & hope the Florida jaunt will help her, (as it probably will)—
—Third, it was I no doubt that sold the Cumberland Street Brooklyn house to Wineburgh2—What is it your friend wants me to do?—Send me word when the coast is all clear, & every thing lovely, & I will come on to Mott Haven for a week's visit—I am well as usual
I write this down in the woods in Jersey but go up to Camden to-morrow3—
