 Little Home Histories, Part 62 -- Copy of a Letter to Margaret Bailey -- From Anna Sears.

by Doudna, Henry.

See previous entry: Little Home Histories, Part 61 -- Anecdotes of No. 1 and No. 2 Schools.

My dear Niece;

We were at Isaac Stubbs on a visit a short time ago, and Elizabeth had these writings of thy father read. She also said thee had said thee would like very much to have them. My granddaughter Anna Milhouse heard it and said she would copy them for me, which she has done and we are about to send them to thee by Tilman and R.E. Patterson, as they talk of starting to Barnesville, Ohio soon, or tomorrow evening.

I suppose thee has heard of the peaceful state of thy father's mind during his last sickness.

I am still here at Robert Millhouse, and they are all very kind to me which makes it a pleasant home.

In much love to thee, Edmund, and the girls, I remain.

Thy Aunt Anna Sears

Aunt Anna Sears was a daughter of the kidnapped boy -- John Doudna -- and a sister to Uncle Henry, who was Margaret Bailey's father and Sara M. Bailey's grandfather.

Extracts of the writings follow.

These extracts are in his own words, except when it seemed better to leave out a word or words to bring out the meaning intended more perfectly or grammatically, and very few were changed at all in what we wrote for we wanted it as nearly as possible in his own words.
