Letter from Agnes M. Wood to Peter Redpath, 20 June 1901

The Manor House.
20: June: 1901:

My dear Peter:

I must write to thank you for sending the cable to me so that I might break the sad news gently to Aunt Grace.

As it is she is broken hearted for you all and can think of nothing else, and her one wish is to be of some little help to you.

I cannot tell you how very, very deeply I am sympathising with you in your terrible sorrow. — and I feel it is almost too great for me to intrude upon – , but I could not let the mail go without acknowledging your cable, and just telling you how much I am feeling for you.

I am sure you must be anxious for dear Amy: it seems impossible that she can bear up under such a trial.

The time seems so long till we can have letters from you, and we are waiting so anxiously for them to come.

Aunt Grace is greatly hoping that some of you will soon come over here, where we would do all we could for you and give you the rest and quiet you must so sorely need. How thankful you and Amy must be that you were back from the west!

Please accept my truest sympathy, and

Believe me,
Very sincerely Yours
Agnes M. Wood
