JIOLISE, Oct. 14, 1874.
My Dear Darling; I am just in re-
cepit ot your note of yesterday. Thanks,
my loved one, for your very affectionate
remembrance of me. How lonely 1
watched for its arrival ; had I not received
it I should have felt terribly, for one iu
that form of mind, this morning, that your
loving mind thrills my heart with emotiou.
Oh how my heart goes forth to meet you
with love that seemingly one continued
existence. Such devotion as 1 feel for
you. My dear, my heart is filied with 1 ve
for you, so full that it seems I cannot give
vent to my expressions of love for you.
Do you, sweet one, realize my feeliugs?
Can you sympathize with me. my darling?
I lully feel that you can, and that our
hearts are cemented with love for all time
to come. How little life would be worth
to me were it not for you, my idolized
darling. Willi you I am willing to risk
my all, and hazzard the chance of life, but
I cannot tell you my feelings, for you
well know how dear you are to me, for 1
love you dearly, and no actious or words
can express half of my feelings for you.
My charming dear, I shall be promptly on
hand to meet you to-morrow evening, at
the appointed 'place and time. How nerv
ously 1 am. and impatient to clasp you to
my arms. I think it is best, you did not
come over. He is away now, but will be
home to-morrow. Ihey have a very poor
opinion ot Nichols here. Bo very careful
that Nichols don't see vou go off with me,
as I do not wish him to suspicion me, and
I do not want my employers to hear of it.
I guess every one knows of the affair in
Moline, but who cares ; I am not intimi-
lated by Moline or Davenport people; all
I ask is what 1 feel confident I got your
1 ve and I defy the devil. This is hastily
written. God bless you, and remember 1
love yo l and you only.
1 embrace you lovingly, 11.
