Letter Written by Helen Mars Beathe:
Radical City, Montgomery County. Kansas
July 31, 1882
We received your most kind and welcome letter a week ago. It gave us much pleasure & satisfaction to hear from you again, Jeff. I would have written sooner but Pene wrote you a letter the same day that I got yours & I thought that it would be better to wait a few days so that you wouldn't get tired of reading both at once.
We are well at present, hoping this will find you well and soon ready to come home. We all want to see you so bad we can't hardy wait for you to come.
Bob has been making hay today. He's fitting up his old cane mill getting ready for the sorghum twist. He is fattening his market hogs. Jim is still here at work. Fill's folks was all well when I heard from them. Old Miss Goodwin, That's Pet, says she has a crow to pick with you when you come back for calling her old Mrs. Goodwin.
Mother has left me to go live with Jesse. He is to be married in about a week. They are living close to Oak Valley. Times is getting better here. We have plenty of everything to eat except bacon and cornbread & that is the hardest of all to do without. Plenty of graden stuff & plenty of all kinds of fruits. We will have lots of apples this winter again, plenty of potatoes, cabbage & tomatoes. I have the finest onions you ever ette, and lots of them, so I want you to come home and feast awhile with us, Jeff. I never have anything a little extra on the table but I think of you. If you was here to help us eat it, how nice it would be to have you with us, but we will live in hopes & die with patience dear Cousin. I do wish I had the money to send to you to help you.
Jeff, I never can be able to return your kindness to us. If I could pay it back I would be so glad but it may be that the time will come when I can return some of your kindness. At least you have more than double paid your way for every day that you ever staid with us. Bob says that you have more than paid him for all he ever done for you and he is your friend as ever. Alice is still waiting for her letter. O Yes I always forgot to tell that Pat is a great big boy. You won't know him when you see him. He walked when he was a year old. He is now 13 months old. Laury is not walking yet. She is sick so much of the time, she has no chance to learn.
Jeff, I guess I have wrote all that I no this time. Perhaps I may have something of more importance to write the next time I write.
Jeff, write soon as you get this if you like to read our letters. We love to read your letters. I never get tired of reading your letters. Jeff, give my love to all the friends there & accept such portion that you think is due to yourself if it be great or small all is well. Goodby till I hear from you again.
H. M. Beathe & family to Cousin Jeff
(Jeff Law was a cousin to Robert "Bob" Crawford Beathe)
