Dear Frances:

Was so glad to get your letter to-nite. I was looking for one from you. I didn’t get one from Onn. To-day. I guess she didn’t have time to write yesterday. Although it’s the first she’s missed this weeke.

You sure had a lot of pullets out of that bunch of chicks. I hope you have as good luck with these others as you had with the last bunch. We were out on a scheme the other day & went into a farm house to get our canteens full. They were just bringing some baby chicks as we were there & Bob Diamond & I watched them put them out.

Tues. nite.

Dear Frances:

Was so glad to get your letter to-nite. I also got one from Garnet. Aunt Clara’ & John Hutzel’s G.F. Aunt Clara sent me a box yesterday with soap, shaving cream, dental cream, candy gum, and cand canned goods in in. I haven’t had a letter from Peggy since Sat. And I’m really disappointed. I can’t imagine wat whats the matter with her unless she doesn’t love me anymore. Maybe she found a new B.F B.F.

I have had a bad cold and I went to the doctor. They said I had acute Broncitis. But I think I’ll be all right in a day or two I’m glad the kids got their hair done. I’ll bet they look really nice now. After me promising it to them and then you had to do it yourself. Well if I hadn’t went in debt for that watch. I guess I could have fulfilled my promise

Tues. nite.

Dear Frank:-

Well I guess it’s about time I got busy on your letter. I wrote Helen Irvin[s letter just before supper and then I thought I’d better get at yours.

Onnellee said She would like for Marrianne, Ross, her & I to go on a picnic, when I come home. But I told her what your said, about her coming out there. However I’ll be calling her when I arrive on Sat. & if you happen to call her before that you & her can arrange. I know you’ll want me to be with you. & I told her that. Anyway La Verne wanted me to let her know when I came down & she would get over to see me. I want to write her a letter & tell her I’ll be coming this week. End & also that I’ll call her on Sat. morn. from Windsor.
