My dear boy,
Had been hoping to hear from you to-day in reference to the coal for [?]. So now I enclose $ [??] in case you think it well to get them as I wrote you. Saw some large coals at Mrs. Coburn's but do not like it. Mrs. Bell's is a little smaller than our red stuff. As I understood, they were 75 cts. a small bag, & thought I would need two. Then I want two tooth-brushes from the Druggist on Jarvis St., Williams, he had none of Dr. Capon's but a kind with Syman on handle was very good, perhaps you could get 3 for less and a box of tooth-paste. As this is late in reaching you, you could telephone the druggist to send it to you pay on delivery. You see, I am sending this on chance not knowing whether you are coming up or not. Bring any socks you have, &c. With much love.
