Char E. Ellison Esqr Dear Sir Your kind & thoughtful letter of some two weeks ago, was duly recd & should have been ansd sooner but that my eyes trouble me so much that I can hardly see to write. I had a serious spell of illness last year from Jan 1 to June 1st I was not able to get around nor attend to any business. I have been out of active business since 1885 - I lost my wife & both of my sons in 1894 & 1895 My health is better this year & my income is sufficient for my family. I often think of you & your older Brother. He was one of the most kind liberal & genial men I ever met. Hoping you & yours are well & prosperous I extend to you my kindest & best wishes. I rented my Factory to Mr Kennerveg & turned over to him the remnant of trade - Yours very truly Homer Hudson
