Sarah Ann Camfield, 26 Sept 1876

Burr Oak Sept 26 1876

Dear Anna do just as you like as far as we are concerned it makes no difference as I know of if you are coming so soon I can not tell any news in fact there is nothing to tel only Charley starts today for california I suppose he left here with that intention

From your affectionate Mother

A very short letter! This was written less than a week before Anna’s marriage to Ashley Carlisle, 2 Oct 1876. Did "do just as you like" refer to the marriage or the planned visit?

I have no idea who Charley was.
