Mr. & Mrs. Joseph Knufmann
Adams, Ill.

Kind Friends:
     Received your letter dated the 12th on the day following and in reply will say that I am sorry to learn of the trouble you are having with Irma.
     Would have written you sooner, but was preparing to go to Springfield on last Monday which I did and returned last night, went by bus and passed through Plainville.
     Am trying to find a place for Irma which may please her and yourself but such things are not always possible, but will make am honest effort to do so, and as soon as I find something suitable I will inform you. So be a little patient. Respectfully Yours,
