Envelope and letter addressed to Mrs J A Matheson, Plainfield, Pictou Co, Nova Scotia.  Postmark Mount Pleasant, Iowa, Nov 9, 8 pm, 1900

Mt Pleasant Iowa

     Nov 8 1900

Dear Sister Anna A,

     The last sad rites are over and our dear Maggie rests in her last home

until the resurrection morn  We laid her to rest near my own Mother yesterday

afternoon and have done her last bidding   How sad I am   How very dreadful

it seems that I can not have her return with me when I look at my dear boy  

Oh how my heart goes out in sadness as I realize Mama will never be with us

again  Oh is it not a dream  Is it possible that she is gone?  But I must

say in sadness yes.  Ah too true yes my sister Alice will go to Duluth with me 

and will stay with me for the present  There was quite a large funeral here and

also a large one at Duluth   I counted 40 wagons and buggies here   All the people

walked in Duluth

    I will close for now

    Yours in sadness

                        Roy
