I trimmed this off a little because it just
barely ran over weight. C.
Canton Jan 3d 1882
Dear Emily or Em (as you
like it) I have just finished
a letter to Sarah and
will write also to you
to send best New Year's
wishes to the family at
home. The last letter I
got was from Mary [--what--]
which was waiting our
return from the country. She
seemed to think it was
near her turn to receive
a letter . I presume she
has got it before this but
I am not quite sure. I
know that mail before last I

wrote to Mother + Edward +
last mail I think to Mattie.
So I am writing to [?thee?]
next in order of ages.
I asked Willie what I
should tell grandpa about
his new knife and he said
"Tso tse ku" which
means Thank him.
Willie is getting to understand
nearly all that we say
in English and begins to
say some words himself
Richard Varnum is just be-
ginning to walk and
say a few words. This
week I am writing a
Sermon on the text given

by the Evangelical Alliance
for Jan 8th "The night is
far spent, the day is at
hand." I have not written
much yet but expect to
do more as the days go on.
Dr Gulick the Agent of the
American Bible Society for
China was here last Sabbath
and preached an excellent
sermon on the power of
concerted prayer. Showing
how the establishment and
progress of Missions had
been very much in im-
mediate connection with
despite arrangements for

concerted prayer.
The weather here
is beautiful now. I suppose
it would seem strange to
you to-day to be sitting
without a fire and writing
with perfect comfort.
Well I am under the
necessity of going to my
chapel now as I have
a meeting at three-o-clock
and my chair has
arrived so I will say
good bye for this time.
Much love from us all
to you and the other members
of the family also
Your Aff Bro
- Henry --

家。最后一封信我
是从玛丽那里得到的
这是等待我们的

在此之前得到它但是
我不太确定。我
知道那封邮件之前我

写信给母亲和爱德华
我想给玛蒂的最后一封邮件。
所以我给你写信
接下来按年龄顺序。
我问威利我是什么
应该告诉爷爷
他的新刀,他说
“措辞古”其中
意思是谢谢他。
威利开始明白
几乎我们所说的一切
用英语并开始
自己说几句话
理查德·瓦纳姆刚刚开始走路,
说几句话。这个
我在写一个星期
关于给定文本的布道

由福音派联盟
对于 1 月 8 日“夜晚是
时间已经过去了

还有很多,但希望
随着时间的推移做更多的事情。

任务的进展有

一致的祈祷。
这里的天气
现在很漂亮。我想
这似乎很奇怪
你今天要坐着
