The first intimation that all is not well at home comes in George's letter dated September 7, 1877.
I am very sorry to hear that father is ill and I hope that by this time he is very much better and Eliza and Jane. Please write and say what is the matter with them all as we are all anxious to know.
It is very cold here to day and the visitors are nearly all gone away.
I enclose 3 of my witnesses and hope you will be pleased with them and that all the sick ones is much better.
Son G Bevan
