is so confused & they have got nothing

in the world to make a living I
cannot see what they are a going
to do if she comes over I will try
& get her to stay with me this
winter for I cannot see what she
is to do I did not go in the house
at Wards but drove up to the
gate & got her & the children & went
to Mrs Chips and stayed all knight
& started home in the morning your
pa wrote a long letter to Lizzie’s pa
telling him her situation we did not
know where to direct it & I wrote a
few lines to Mr Moore & sent the
letter to him requesting him to send it
