    Dear friends

    I take the earliest opportunity of informing you that Mother Dunn is no more. She died this morning about sun rise. Julia and I got home last night about sun down. It is hard to tell whether she knowed Julia or not. She Spoke her name once after we come. She will be buried in the morning at 10 Oclock. We all feel sad and know that we have lost our best earthly friend. I will write no more now
    In haste
    Yours
    Joseph Dick.
