Dear Husband
Language: English 
"Dear Husband:
Come this fall without fail.
I want to see you so much.
That is the one bright hope I have.
If you do not get me,
Somebody else will.
It is said that Master will sell me;
Then all my hopes will fade.
If I thought I should never see you again,
This earth would have no charms for me.
The baby has started to crawl.
The other children are well.
Oh that blessed hour
When I shall see you once more!
You must write to me soon
And say when you can come."
