[fragment of letter]

had no idea we could get into
[Pekin?] so soon.
We are in the heat of another
Presidential election, but I am
keeping quiet. I made a short
talk before one of our local
clubs on Friday evening. And will
stop at that. It is going to be a
close election.
Yesterday was the 41st Anniversary
of our marriage.
I hope you will not time your
answer by my answering your's
and let me know if Wm. [William?] Wylie
found you. I can't account for
not seeing or hearing from
him. We all join in love and
best wishes for your health.
Your loving Nephew
J. [James?] Banks Reford.
