Text

Most beloved American daughter

This very little gift comes bearing many devoted thoughts and affectionate good wishes for your marriage

You are so often in my thoughts and always enshrined in my heart—How I long to see you and your husband

This will arrive late because I have been not seriously but really helplessly unwell for the last two weeks.

Your happiness fills my mind just now & will until the great day when you & your beloved are made one. God bless you both. Come as soon as you can—

Your Scotch Mother.
