Mr. Wesley Millett
Ansonia Oh.

Respected Cousin I feel it my duty to drop you a few lines this morning
with the Sad news that your father was buried yesterday after a sickness
of four days. I did not hear of his being so very bad until they came 
here after the coffin. I went out right away to come back that evening &
tried to send a telegram To you but there was no office at your place 
so I could not send it. We did not get any of the children here except 
Dock & Jo & Elmira. I telegraphed Jo & he got here in time for the 
funeral, he will stay here till Monday. He will give you the particulars 
when you see him. Hoping this will find you all well.

I remain as ever your friend and cousin
                                                  John Millett
                                                  Portland Ind.

P.S. My family is all-well J.M.

Note: Millette was sometimes spelled with or without the E
