Providence R.I.

81 Angell Street

Jan 14th 1881

You have all been in mind dear friend many a time since I came here, but writing is difficult under these social circumstances. Little sociable Mary comes, little Sully comes, Minnie comes, and callers are happening all through each day. As Minnie can see few beside the nearest of her own & her husband's kindred, the goings down to entertain fall to my share. Nothing but love for my niece would have drawn me out from my home shell this winter- there was no resisting the pathetic note that came begging for me to come to her in this time of her need.
