Luke C. Keith, Esq.

Marion[1] behaves so I start her to Michigan. She expects to start from here Monday night next the (16th inst). If nothing happens she will be at Galesburg on the Wednesday morning train. I suppose the boats and trains run in connection so there will be no delay – if there should happen to be a delay she may not arrive till night. If any thing happens here so she does not start Monday I will write again. As she will be alone I hope it will be convenient for you to meet her at the Depot.

Marion will give you the news.

Truly yours

Geo. Tomlinson


[1] George’s wife, Marion (Sprague) Tomlinson
