My Dear Nell,
You have been married now for nearly 5 months and it seems far longer than that since I have seen you. I hear that you are going to have a little visitor before Christmas. I hope all is well.
I suppose you thought that I was going to forget you this time for sure. Well, I have little news of any importance but will write anyway to tell you what is happening in my life and about all your old friends here.
I got all my teeth filled. Allen filled the real bad one and three others that cost me $12.00 exactly but I am not sorry as they are so much improved. I think one of the others has commenced to decay but I will not let it go so far as the others went. Had a letter from sister Bertha not long ago. She is well, enjoying her teaching but does not say much about her prospects of any sort. I know Bertha would like to marry. Enough for now,
