Anna Camfield Carlisle, Summer 1890


Buchanan Mich
Friday morning

Dear Ashley,

I went up to the office last evening, got your letter, glad to hear you were well, hope you will be careful this hot weather. Frank dont wish me to tell you that he has the measles as wants to surprise you. but he is over the worst of it now. he has not sat up any for three days only to have his bed made but I think he can begin to sit up a little to day and in a few days he will be all right. I suppose by the last of next week the others will have it so I think if the

girls will wait and not come over untill we all get well again that they would enjoy the visit better than to come while the children are sick.

I haven't time to write any more now as Mr Voorhees will take this up to the office when he goes up to open the church for Mrs Kelleys funeral. Old Mrs Torgie died last evening.

I hope you will be careful and not get sick this hot weather it wont hert you if you dont work all the time.

A Carlisle
