Thomas Jefferson Whitman to Louisa Van Velsor Whitman, 15 February 1873

Dear Mother

Yours received—Mattie is still about the same—her cough and choking is a little better but she has more trouble with her arm and side  last night it was terrible painful and she slept very little

This morning she was feeling a little easier

Tell George that I am exceeding grateful to him—and may call for him to come on—but not at present

Love to all

affectionately Jeff

You must excuse brevity—I have hardly time to do what business is absolutely required
