you a few lines to let you know we
are all well as this leaves us hoping this

a Photoe [Photo?] of myself and husband to let
you see what your new Nephew is like

I have not gone back yet my husband

very busy now and he does not be home
much I like my new home well but
get lonesome sometimes when I have to
stay alone much I live about 90 miles

three hours so that is not so bad

news in his last letter he is getting
