Emma Asks a Math Question
Emma Austin, now eighteen, wrote Chester. She asked for help with a math problem. The answer came at the end of April.
Walton, April 28, 1869
Yours came to home last night. I now proceed to solve the problems for you.
10th example, page 247. As we glance at the rule under Art. 210 we find 2 ways to do the example.
From the 2nd clause of the rule we get the following statement:
There is 1 or 2 other ways to do this ex., but hoping that this will suffice, I leave them now.
I think you can understand the above without any further illustration.
It will ever give me pleasure to help you in your examples when necessary.
Yours etc., Chester Beers
