Dear Capt McDonald

I find I made a mistake, Papa bought the little houses, and as there is nothing left that the children had made I am obliged to tell you of my inability to execute even a fraction of yr. commissions! But I know you will not be sorry to hear this.

Give my love to Mrs. McDonald, who I hope is a great deal better even without her Mother ‘s arrival.

Yours sincerely,

Agnes Lee
