Dear Miss Whitney.

My dear Louisa left me this morning after a brief illness of a few days only.

She was spared the pain of parting being unconscious from the first.

The end was peace, & amid my inexpressible sorrow I can but rejoice that the tired one is at rest.

She has always expressed the desire that no public services, should be held on her departure.

But a few whom she

loved will be with us on Thursday (at 11 a.m.) Will you come - I am sure she would wish it.

Affecty. yrs'

Letter from Anna Pratt, Boston, Massachusetts, to Anne Whitney, 1888 March 6
