My dear Stanley
I am sending a check for the balance on the Ford and $5000 toward the garage.
I haven't had any acknowledgement of the first check nor have I received the estimate of the garage, but I will hope [page 2] for them both in a day or two.
Please don't spend any of this money except for the Ford and the garage.
We were very much pleased with your telegram that the baby was so much better.
With love to all of you,
Always your loving Aunt Jane Addams.
