First two pages of letter missing. Louisa informs Sadie that Mrs. Bushnell attending church and plans on attending all the time. She also notes other women she bumped into while at church. While there, papa attended a strong temperance sermon text entitled "Am I my brothers' keeper?" Louisa notes all the baking of ginger cookies she has been doing and frets over the laundry that still has yet to be completed. Louisa plans on enclosing a dollar so that Sadie will buy her a pair of silk gloves and suggests that if there is any left over money, Sadie should buy herself a pair of silk gloves as well.
