Miss Annie Weir

Dear Friend
Annie I now thake [take?] the
pleasure of writing those
few lines to let you now [know?]
that I received your letter
this morning and was
glad to hear from you
yes you can bet it was
slippery that morning
I nearly come (sic) getting
some broken bones
that morning going to
breakfast. Now Annie
you can beleave [believe?] me if
you wish they are putting
up a Jok [joke?] on you when
I left the E.M.A.
Miss Livingstone asked
me to write to hear [her?]
I did so if I can remember
I got 3 letters from her
and I thought she had
gone far enough and I
wrote and told her
that I would have to
quit writeing [writing?] to hear
[her?] of cause [course?] she his
[is?] a nice Girl as far as knew
(sic) but once told me a
big lie it was about
going out one after noon
soilgers [soldiers?] reunion she
said she was not going
out that afternoon
of [off?] I had been out with her
a few times anaway [anyway?]
she said she did not
keep company with
Jim Britton so that
after noon I happened
to be working under
the Center Building
and about 2 O clock who
should I see but Jim
and her coming out of
Center so I thought if
she ackted [acted?] like that
she could go for me
she used to try to get
me to go out with her
but I said no Annie
you say that I did not
care for you the Idea I think
the world of you I allways [always?]
thought there never was
another such a girl that
was born that I should like
as well as I did you
and think just the
same yet i think it
must of been your
fault Annie i am just
as free as I was when
I was at the E.M.A.
there his [is?] nobody got
any claims yet on me if it
his [is?] Leap year
I am sorry you ever had
that other young man
as I would of put my
hat on the shelf for
you [shour?] I have been
thinking a grate [great?] many
times of leaving and
going to Cal. [California?] I
wrote to your Sister to day and
wrote her a good long
letter and hope she will
write back Please tell
Miss Giddings I would
prefer one of hers alone
and will be thankfull [thankful?]
for small mearceys [mercies?]
well I wish her much
joy if I dont care for
John she was a nice
girl as far as I now [know?]
Well Annie I think
this is all at present
