      3 Crescent Avenue, Atlanta GA

      Dear Uncle John: 

      Many thanks for the $3000 which arrived safely.  My husband wrote you at my request explaining why we telegraphed.  I have not been at all well lately and am going tomorrow to Marietta for a weeks rest.  You remember perhaps I was there the first summer after I was married. I will take Alma and the nurse and Mr Howell is coming up to spend Sunday.  I include the receipt you sent me to sign. Give my love to Aunt Teresa.  Hoping to see you next summer. 

      I remain, yours affectionately,
      Nellie Davison Howell
