    When Henry came home last night, he saw a letter from his wife.
    She was written him that he went his mother's because she is sick and she asked Henry to do something.
    She asked him that he takes his coat to the dry cleaner's
    Leave his shirt at laundry and pick up her shoes on the way home
    Then buy something for home and call her friend and tell her that she can't go to the party and say the reason to her.

    She asked him to take his coat to the dry cleaner's, leave his shirt at the laundry, and pick up her shoes on the way home. Then he was to buy something for home (or for the house (I think she would be more specific)), and then he was to call her friend and tell her that she can't go to the party and explain why. He was to take out the garbage, feed the dog, and mow the lawn. And not to forget to tip the newspaper boy. She would call him before long to tell him how her mother was doing.
