My Dear Son,
I received your very kind letter this afternoon. Was glad to hear that you are in good health. Lucy is just recovering...The dear little thing would look up at me and say 'Don't let brother Henry and Pa know I am sick.' When I ask why, she would reply 'It would make them feel so bad.' ...There is one thing I must tell you about your dear little sister. That is she never closes her eyes without praying for every member of the family especially Pa and brother Henry....and when night would come she would say, 'Ma I want to pray for dear Pa and Henry. One night she was so sick her throat was so sore she could not speak loud but in a shisper she asked God's blessing for dear Pa and Henry...
I must close and write a few lines to Pa,
Your Affectionate Mother
A. M. Barber
Dear Henry write often. Receive a kiss for Lucy, Levy and also from your Mother. My love to Pa.
8 Mar 1887
"I did intend to write you sooner but all week I have been busy and Sunday your man Mr Longley was here to see about his seeder and corn teams and to buy plows. I think he will be a good steady tenant for you. Henry says as soon as he gets the little kitchen finished he will write you anything I want him to, and will write you the promises you told me to have him. I didn't tell him you asked me to have him do it, but told him it was his duty to you to do it...
Love to all and kiss the children.
