From: Daniel A. Burke, Chicago, Ill.
To: Charles B. Younger, Jr.
1 manuscript letter in black ink on two faintly lined sheets, 11” x 8.5”. “Hazelton” watermark.

“Dear Friend Charles, The first visitor to our new Flat at 6448 Jefferson Ave. was your dear boy Donald, and in his beautiful portrait I see your noble self. Rest assured it had the place of honor in my new home. W. F. & Co. Ex. called at my former address and then sent me their Notice Card, so its arrival was somewhat delayed in Chicago. But finally he arrived all right and in perfect condition. It is a splendid portrait, and in his Buster Brown suit, looks to be a big healthy boy, that any man would be proud to be the father of. I wished I had him, and so does Mrs. Burke who is also very fond of children, and is much in love with all of Donald’s protraits.
Charley, I should be much pleased if you could visit Chicago this Summer, and if possible bring Donald, and spend with me, my Vacation. I am within a block of Jackson Park, can look from our windows to the Links, and possibly we could enjoy a sail in some friend’s yacht on the Lake, as the Jackson Park Yacht Club is about 15 minutes walk. When you visited Chicago, just 5 years ago tomorrow, that beautiful St. Patrick’s Day, on a Sunday morning, you found me and Chicago at it worst. I should be much pleased if you could visit me again, and find some relaxation from legal work and rest yourself for a change. My home is humble, but we both understand each other, and as my brother, you would be a Thousand times Welcome. “lead Mille Failthr.”[?] There is much for a professional man to see in our City, and as two days was too short the last time you were here, another visit of a longer stay will interest you greatly I think.

I hope Mrs. Younger is well and reconciled to the will of our Heavenly Father in your sad affliction of the loss of dear little Bruce.

Hoping you are well, as I know dear Donald is from his Picture, sending you and Donald my Love with a Kiss to Donald, I am, with many Thanks for Donald’s portrait. Yours as ever /s/ Daniel A. Burke 6448 Jefferson Ave. Chicago Ill.”
