[Grandma Wright to Grandma Bruen whenGrandpa W. died]Brooklyn 1-4-1865My dear FriendThy kind and sympathetic letter is just received, heart-felt expressions of sympathy as I know thine to be are always grateful to the sorrow stricken and particularly from those who have passed through the same bereavement, and felt that their sun had indeed been darkened, but there is still a glimmering behind the clouds. My children are a great comfort to me and while I have them I feel that life is still worth living. I can rejoice with thee in having Frank at home. How grateful it would be to Fred and Sella to have thee and him to visit them if it could be so.My love to thy mother and all the rest of your family.Affectionately thy friend,Mary W Wright
