Dear Uncle,
It is with
pleasure I now take the opportunity
of writing you a few lines
to let you know that we are well
at present hoping to hear from you.
Enjoying the same blessing
i have wrote several letters to
you and never received an answer
from any of them Uncle John Lowrie
told me they had word from you
so i came to the conclusion I would
write and see if i would have
any luck this time mother had
a light stroke of paralsis [paralysis?] in the
spring but she is able to be around
But has no use of her left hand
otherwise she seems about as good
as before only she is weaker than
We have had an awful dry
summer here and the
crops all suffered in consequence
farmers in this section have all
thrashed their crops and some
odd ones have started to sow
fall wheat but the majority
will start sowing the first week
in September i am going to write
a short letter this time but
if this one is answered I will
give you all the particulars in my
next one Uncle John Lowrie
and family are all well. Mr & Mrs
Cranston and family were well
the last we heard from them
Give our love to my Aunt &
cousins hoping soon to hear
from you all and remain
Your Affectionate Nephew
