Aug. 24th 1872

My Dear friend,
I have been thinking of writing to you a long time& I feel that I must at this hour
write to you in your deep affliction. I hope dear friend you are ready to say the will of
Lord be done. God in his providence has dealt with you as with many others when he
requests of you to kiss the rod in taking from you a dear affectionate sister he has another
link added to the happy kindred reunited around the bright home of His exalted throne.
Truly do I sympathize with you in this bereavement. I to have felt the great sorrow but
God's will be done what is your loss is his eternal gain. It was quite a shock to us all all
though [although] I felt when I told her good buy [goodbye] it would be the last I could
not help shedding tears I have thought so much about her & dreamed about her. I feel for
you all so much, knowing how loving & affectionate Family you all are. You must write
to me when it is convenient & tell me all about her sickness. Give a great deal of love to
the dear little ones & dear Cousin Robert. Aunt Julia had a great deal of sickness this
summer. Some of the children have been very sick but all are up. I hope they will
continue to keep well. Sister Marry Mrs. Oakley has also [also] been sick but is up again
does not look well. There has & is a great deal of sickness in & around town but not
many deaths. Aunts family are all very [very] well all sends love to all. Kiss your little
ones. How I would like to see you all. My respects to General A do excuse all
From your true friend
Lizzie Neills
