The following was graciously sent to me from Cynthia Hardy (Contributor #46589607)

Last note to husband

In the pocket of Flagman Lott, it is said there was found a note from his wife, in which she told him goodbye for the day, assuring him of her love and that he would be anxiously awaited at the next meal to which he was due. It was a loving, womanly little epistle, penned without a thought that it was her last message and that her husband would be fatally injured before he cleared the city of his train.
