Your letter was received but due to illness I was un­able to answer until now. Up to now I have had two different doctors. My breath has been very short like when I had to go to the hospital and have been spit­ting blood and many other symptoms too numerous to mention, but I am some better this morning.
Go to Mrs. V---------?s church in Brooklyn across
from her house and appeal to the priest that you need your money. Tell the whole thing and ask him to help you get it for you and I think it will help. ... As soon as I am able I will send you the money to go home. Regards.
