February 2, 1882

To: Sarah Keith, Galesburg, MI

From: Hiram Crawford Jr., Chicago, IL

Kate has been suffering with neuralgia in the head. The last time Hiram saw Prosper, he was well, although they don’t see each other very often. “It has been quite a fall for them but he seems to take it quite philosophically.” Edna Allen and her husband and daughter visited them about two weeks ago.

Dear Sister

This letter leaves us all in pretty good shape with the exception of Kate[1] who has for the past two weeks and is now suffering with neuralgia in the head, caused by a bad cold. She gets better one day and is worse the next. The last time I saw LP[2] they were all well. They live in such an out of the way place that we dont see each other very often. It has been quite a fall for them but he seems to take it quite philosophically. The rest of our family I know nothing about. I forgot that Edna Allen[3], husband & daughter[4] made us a visit spending the day and evening with us about two weeks ago. Everything appeard to be lively. Enclosed find five (5) doler.

Love to all

Your Brother

H Crawford
