Dear Mr McCullagh

                I enclose your rental and draft for 1903 I am very sorry to see you are not doing better  There is nothing but trouble in this world but all the time we will be here we must strive and bear it I hope we will all meet where trouble and crying is unknown some very [sudden] deaths here which is a warning to us all.  Hoping you are all well

                       I remain

                           Yours sincerely

                                 M M Rutherford
