EARLY HISTORY OF CLOUD COUNTY
BY H.E. SMITH
JULY 16, 1875

THE DEAD LETTER
He overheard our conversation in the garden, and thus learned of our engagement. A year previously he had proposed to me and was rejected and in revenge he determined to blast my happiness at all hazards. He was an expert at imitating the hand-writing of others, and having attended the same school that I did for several years, he was easily enabled to produce a facsimile of my chirography.
A few weeks after your departure he was thrown from a buggy and fatally injured. Before he died he sent for me, and I received from his tongue the secret that he was the author of a letter to which my name was signed, and had caused your sudden strange flight.
In whatever light you have come to look upon me it is but right for you to know the truth. For myself my heart has never changed. Jennie
The first thing I did after reading this letter was to obtain leave of absence for a few weeks; the next was to hasten to my lodgings, pack my trunk and take the first rain for N-----.
The train was the “Fast Express,” but to me it seemed a “slow coach.” Close connections were made, and at six o’clock that evening I stepped upon the platform at N----. It had been two years since my feet had touched it. A crowd of recollections rushed through my mind, but nothing stayed me. At once I set out for the Fisk mansion. It was summer, and as I followed the walk form the gate to the door every object seemed as familiar as if I had seen them only the day before.
My desire was to find Jennie alone, and my wish was gratified. The old hall door was open, and I stepped in unannounced. I turned into the parlor softly and saw her sitting at a west window gazing at the glowing sunset sky, but oh how changed. There were Jennie’s eyes and hair, but the rounded form and glowing cheeks were wanting; in their place were wan features and an emaciated form—a wreck of her former self. The hand destroyer was upon her, and it was evident that her sufferings were fearful. My heart sank within me, and again my dream of happiness vanished.
