I am sorry I have not replied to your kind notes, but I have been very busy with my classes. Now I have a little more time this fine Saturday evening to write before going to my bed.
What would you advise me to get as a summer hat? Tell me in your next letter. If you care, I’ll send you some samples of print material in my next letter.
I was at a Scott and Partners Concert on the 13th. I walked the whole way after school but have suffered off and on ever since with cramps in my legs. Did not go alone but went with Esther Clogan.
Uncle Martin expects Maggie home for a visit. She may be home now for all I know. The Uncle John Bells are going to make brick by steam next year. I think they must be improving financially. I mean to go there to visit in the summer for three days. Have not seen Fanny since I last saw you. Yet she has been in town three of four times. She has not been very well since she was at Perry’s Ball. She got her fawn dress done over with terra cotta plush for the occasion. My little tan coloured shoes are going all at once. I wish I had another pair like them for they look fine with the navy blue dress.
Don’t forget to advise me about the dentistry.
Mrs. Friesh is real well does not complain at all. They killed their dog and Mr Friesh is away today looking for another. She says “Hope it is won’t be a big one, it costs such a lot for food.”
Pa had a letter and a newspaper from the Chicago friends. They are making fortunes altogether, $100 coming in every month, did not tell all the outlay though.
Ma bought a washstand and half dozen chairs at Birdshaws sale.
Now, that is all the news from around here, please excuse mistakes in writing from my own carelessness,
Love to all,
