Transcription of letter:

Chicago, Ill Feb. 4th ‘74 My dear Father and Mother,

I presume you think it about time you were hearing from me, but I am kept so busy with my booke (?) I can hardly find time for anything. My sister Clxxxxx? Left us last evening to go to our mother’s in Ohio. We will miss her very much for she was so lively. We have had a very mild winter so far & I think it will continue so, but we have had rainy weather for two weeks.

Is Ruf still teaching school and does he like it. I don’t think I should very much. I presume he teaches the little ones at home.

I think we will move the first of May but not leaving the city at all. I hope in June to be in Tenn with you all, that is if nothing happens. Our exposition is open again and will be as long as the building stands.

We are having dull times here, scarcely any of the money can be had at all. I hope you do not feel the panic(?) like we do here.

My love to mother and the little ones. Hope you will answer immediately. I remain as ever your devoted daughter, Lizzie Kennedy

Written in another persons writing is “Houston Kennedy wife” - Very likely written by Cora Kennedy Whitlock.
