Garden Grove Express
Thursday, May 11, 1893
Garden Grove, Iowa


We are in receipt of a letter from D. J. BOYDSTON, under date of May 7th,
advising us that the family arrived at Knoxville about 9 o'clock the same evening
they left here. They were met by their friends at the depot. He and grandma
stood the trip splendidly, did not feel tired. But owing to the continued
damp cool weather, he took cold and felt quite badly for a few days, but by
close confinement in the house and good care recovered rapidly. Within a few days
after arriving at Knoxville the swelling in his limbs began to subside and
continued steadily until at the date of his letter it was all gone, and that he
is steadily gaining in strength, rests well at night, and is in a fair way to
be up and around. Grandma is steadily failing. Mrs. BOYDSTON's health is
good. The family is nicely located five blocks west of the square. All are well
pleased with their home.

He sends kind wishes to all their friends here. We are glad to get such news
from our former townsman, and we join their many friends here in sending
congratulations that he is improving in health and we sincerely hope it will
