Dear Frances:

I received your letter the other day & also the girls. They sure did swell in writing them too. Thanks a lot for the box Frances. It sure was good. We just got it finished in the middle of the week, when Johnny Burn’s wife sent him a box. He & Bob sleep with Glen Piper & I. The four of us in our tent.

I got a letter from Glaydys Gladys & Wilbur to-day & also one from La Verne. I sure was glad to hear from her. She said she was talking to you before she wrote. And that you expected coming up here this weekend. I hope you do. I’m sure counting on it. La Verne said if I came to Cottam, to let her know & they she would come over & see me.

Dear Frank:-

I received your letter to-day and was so glad to hear from you. I also got one from Onn. I was glad to hear you got home without any accidents as it was bad enough to get lost. I was sort of anxious to hear from you as it rained all evening Sun. up here & you had so far to drive & Ross so tired. Onn. said she drove thirty miles, if I remember right.

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.
