Dear Emma

I am well and hope this may find you all enjoying the same blessing. I have received two letters from you this week. I am very sorry to learn that Sister is still sick and wish I could be at home. I was greatly pleased to get our Babies Pictures and would have been still better pleased to have got my little wifes. We have had some of the coldest weather during the past week I think I ever saw but it has turned warm again and is raining today. I wish it would stay cold. As cold weather is more preferable than rainy weather. Dr. Beck and Dr. Taylor will be at our house before this reaches you I expect. They have been examined and will start home next week by the way of Honey Grove and on to our house and they can tell you more than I can write. I would like to go with them right well but have got no excuse for a premature examination and shall not ask for it. And will s stick them out for the next six weeks. I am very nervous today heard eight lectures yesterday and set up and wrote on my thesis till twelve oclock last night and have been working on it to day. and you know I am hard to please on to get a thesis that suits me. But think I will get in a style not to be ashamed of. I must close excuse bad writing. Iwould write more but will write when Dr Beck Starts home.

Give my love to all Kiss the

Babies for Papa a Kiss to Wife

Your affectionate Husband,

S.G. Bittick
