My dear Mrs Blaine,

Thank you so much for the big check which came this morning and which enables us to breathe freely [for] the moment. With gratitude for this and many another. Always affectionately yours

Because the "f" is used as "for" a few lines up, I am not sure why there is a question about [for], unless the brackets themselves indicate the word has been inserted by the editor. If the latter is the case, then do all "f"s become [for] in this and all other transcripts?

Cathy Moran Hajo

We are bracketing here because there is no tailing line after the f as in the other "for"s in the document. It may have been a skip of the pen. We are mostly going with context to interpret it rather than the letters we see, so we have bracketed it.
