Handwritten Letter Found Inside the Bible

Note from Kim: "I believe the "Mother" the letter is addressed to is Alice Ellsworth Alderman, wife of William Henry Alderman, who is one of the "Births" listed above. They had 12 children including George, Rose (not sure why she signs Rosa), Estella/Stella, and Alice. Alice was married 11/3/1900 in Stephentown at age 18, to John H. Reisner, age 22. In the 1910 census they have two children, Walter b. 1902 and Louis b. 1906. In the census Alice says she has borne 3 children but only 2 are living. I'm wondering if she lost the child around the time this letter was written and that is the "bad news" mentioned, since that timeframe would be right in between the other two births just a theory."
