The is something wrong when a man who admittedly reaches high rank in an important profession such as that of Librarian is unable in that position to make suitable provision for his family. I do hope you will be successful in business, and, what is more important, that your health may be better and that of Mrs. Anderson, in your new home. I shall hope to hear from time to time how you are doing, and my best wishes and deep interest in your welfare will always accompany you. We are greatly indebted to you for the model Library you have established* No one can rob you of the credit of that. With best wishes for you and yours, Always your friend, Edwin H. Anderson, Esq., Carnegie Library, Pittsburg. P.S. - You may wish to keep the enclosed.
