Dear Wife I rec'd thy Postal this morning & have bought & send by Alfred 3 books for the children as requested. He has packed them up now (as he is not coming home tomorrow night) & I am not certain of their names The one I thought would suit Anna best is Songs of the Twilight Hour - or some such name - that for Algy "Proverbs" & that for Edward whats left. However they are none of them very suitable for the boys & its quite probable that thee will find some other arrangement will suit thee best. I spent quite as much time looking for them as ought to have sufficed to get much more appropriate books. Carrie has told thee that Anna has determined not to go to Newport with Alfred. The Dr goes to Lillies tomorrow & I think expects to stay till 2nd day, & I suppose Anna has concluded it would be best to wait to return with them. They will have to come home then as Thomas & Elizabeth are invited to go
