My Dear Sister (Mrs. Al E. Wright/Elizabeth Ann Steele Wright) Temporarily residing at her son's, John Wright, 1306 Rhode Island Avenue, Washington, DC:

I received this morning a from M... Harrison the Newark Daily Advertiser from which I cut the enclosed slip...she is the last one of that family of ten who all lived to grow up, marry and raise families but Aunt Matilda. The dear old aunt is gone, but she will live long in the memory of all her nieces and nephews--but as all are ready to drive down to Lizzie's for dinner must close. Love to you all. Yours truly, Marshfield Steele
