Manchester, Mass 19 May 1886

Dear Edwina:

Your marriage day is a bright spot in my memory; & the bride, bridegroom & the


father giving you to him make a scene in a real drama, still fresh in my mind- The little lady, who has [come?], [illegible],


that beautiful wedding-feast, with all its friendly guests- She is the anniversary. Kiss her for me, till I can hold her in my own arms-You &


your husband & father are, together, in a warm place in my heart. My daughter & sister are delighted with your letter & kind remembrance. Affectionately with them. I am indeed evermore your C. A. Bartel
