Dear friend just a line or to how
are you getting along and is Bettie
Strough able to be up we heard
she had a nurse taking care of
her I’m sorry for her and family
Is Gus Peters living yet
We had a spring day yesterday
to day the clouds are very heavy
threatening another snow storm
John is working in a barn takes
care of three horses
we are all well with love
Sarah A Strough and family

Sarah Ann Bowers Strough (1849-1937) was married to John W. Strough (1841-1917.) Bettie Strough is probably Sarah’s sister-in-law Elizabeth Mary Strough (1852-1931), married to John’s brother Abraham Strough (1851-1911).

Gus Peters was still living. Augustus Peters (1839-1914) died Dec. 12, 1914 and is buried in Craig MO.
