Dear Sister:-
I only received your letter
Tuesday night but I thought if I wrote
right away that you would
think that I had reformed. you spoke
of your missing some faces at church but I
don't know who misses them more
than me it is so different having
meeting in the after noon, prayer-
meeting Tuesday nights and everything
so different. Isn't it funny
that our folks have a prayer meeting
on the same night as the one
at our church and neither one
knew about the other changing.
Jennie & I got our letters at
the same time and so if I write
before Jenny you must give me
credit for it as I have been
so neglectfull [neglectful?] but I do not have
the time I have letters that I
received at Christmas time that
have never been answered but I
will answer them some time.
You spoke about never going out
alone any more I hope you do
not have one fel--- [fellow?] in
the kitchen and one in the sitting
room. I have had my picture taken
and will send you one so you
can look at me once in a
while if you don't come to see
Well it is sunday morning the first
chance I have had to finish this
letter so you can see how much time
I have. I expect to go to church this
after noon was at Covenent [covenant?] meeting
yesterday it was just a month ....
