My dear Mack

A long time ago I think I said I would make you a scrap book. I suppose
you may forget that but I have been making it up by little bits, a bit now
and another time a little bit more, and at last I have got it done and I
send it to you. I am afraid when you see this parcel you will think there is something very nice in it and that you will be greatly disappointed when
you find such a shabby Book but perhaps you may find some story or
something in it that will amuse you some day or evening when you have
a few spare minutes to look into it. I had a few lines yesterday from Aunt
Annie to tell me that Uncle Jack had got the Turnip seed I sent by Express
about ten days ago....
Give my love to them both & to Bun & Birdie, Kenny & Willie and
a big lump for yourself with a kiss to Mamma & to Betty. I am dear Me
as ever your fond
F. Stewart
