My Dear Son,

…Our pass runs out the 15th of December and we want to leave here about the first of December or sooner. I think I would rather prefer going on the Limited to St. Louis and stay all night there. Then get a sleeper from Cincinnati to Cumberland which will cost $2. So you will have to hurry and get a house and let us know. I thought I would go in my old clothes and not spoil my nice suit and hat and you take us to some hotel where they would not know us till we get dressed up before going to a place where you are known. What do you say about it.

I sold the hanging lamp for 75 cents and the old lounge for $1 today.

Mrs. B. came down and had supper. She doesn't seem to mind us going away. I think she rather likes it that Pa won't make any more money.

She says Polly's a gem and Foraker is fine.

Your loving Mother
