Dear Annie

I received the book you sent
was very much obliged to you
Well I suppose you would
like to know what I am doing
to tell the truth I havent done
much of any thing but eat
and sleep, We get up so late
mornings and have three
meals a day that it doesnt
leave much time for any
thing else. However I have
been to see all the new
babies in town except one
that came to town yesterday
at [Ann Le--?] house,
And I also have been to see
a bride of a few weeks, so you
see I have not been altogether
idle, The first week I was at
home it was fine [over?] head
but Oh! the mud you see we dont
have flag side walks here,
And if you were here you could
walk on the grass to your hearts
content, if you could find it
under the mud, but now it is
all frozen up so instead of mud
we have humps to walk on.
Well how are you all getting along
down there I often think of you and
wonder if poor Wells has as hard
a time as ever using the dishes.
And how does Miss Osburn get along
with the work.
What is the program for Christmas
any thing out of the [c----n since?]
You must be rather short of help
again [Len?] going away is Maud
going just the same or will they
have her wait, I suppose Hattie
is waiting anxiously for her turn.
I would have enjoyed my
self much better if I had not
got so put out in my calculation
dont know [now?] as I shall go
to [Ronnies?], at all if I do i
will only go for a few days.
How is Lot getting along with
that [pu----ing?] string has she got
it drawn up yet. So Liz is Sup
[Superintendent?] of Hospital two
i thought she would be. Mrs Steel have
charge of the 1st Hosp! [Hospital?] I
wish I could step in about midnight to
night and see what you and Osburn has
for supper for I suppose she eats
with you doesent [doesn't?] she.
I think the baptist church is to
have a Christmas tree here. that
will be all there will be going
on in this little burg
Has any of the girls heard from
Dell and if so how is she progressing
I feel awfully sorry for her for I know
it will be trying at times for her
I dont know as you can read this
I am in somewhat of a hurry as
I am going visiting and want to
get this ready to take to the office
when I go remember me to all
the night watches, and the girls
on your hall, and in fact all
the girls, and boys also,
and write soon to
your loving friend

It seems as if the time
was flying fast, it will soon be
time for me to go back to work
and I dread it wish I had an
[another?] week
