I thought with Miss Gotham, that you would be glad to hear from the person who has the care of your sister Mrs. Pike who I have much pleasure in saying, and to use her own words, is [simply ??] happy and very comfortable she sends her kindest love to you and she is quite sure she has been sent to the home through her Heavenly father. Her senses are quite clear and memory wounderful. She I am quite sure will never be able to walk but I find her very patient and thoughtfull for the nurses she has.
[His regards turns ??].

I have received through Miss Pike for the fees from April 25th to May 25th ₤3.150 and after she hears -from you, she would give me one guinea per week, but yesterday I said I would make it ₤52. per year paid monthly considering that Mrs. Pike was likely to remian with me, as far as I could see. Miss Gotham is now with your sister, and will be able to Endorse all these stated. I shall deem it no trouble at any time to communicate with you how your sister is getting on.

I beg to remain
Yours respectfully
