very sick when I got it and she

around my Husband was
taken down with a severe pain
in his head and back and
stomach so he was one week in
bed and the Doctor tending him

today but pretty weak yet
So my brother and myself
have to attend to business

little trouble once in a while

cold here and snowed quite
a bit but today it is raining

time you would stay longer

hurried the folks all wish to be
remembered to you and of course
James wishes to be remembered
I will let Maggie go out when her
Antie [Auntie?] goes for I know she would enjoy
it I will have to close goody [goodbye?] this time
