TranscriptMy Dear Cousin X
I received your letter the other day was glad to hear from you, but sorry to have kept
you waiting so long, however there was a letter on the road for you when you wrote I hope you
got it before this. Your girl is quite well I delivered your message she seemed quite pleased,
really, Johnie I think more of that girl every day, she says to me, your cousin will think we are an
awful bold crowd up here, and that I am spoiling you, he will think that we talk of nothing else
but fellows but Johnie don’t you think that it was long ago she I was spoiled. Well dear me I
don’t know what to write you, my cold is all better now, how is Katie, you want to be careful
and not get the mumps. Well have you been to see Maggie since. It seems to me that you do
not go very often, what is the trouble, you must tell me all about it when you write. You did
well to hold onto your wild horse, how did it get frightened. Well Johnie I intended to write you
a good long letter to day, but Kept putting off, so when Mary was writing I thought I would
write a note and then send you a letter some time through the week. I hope to get

stop, we are still having very cold weather, now I hope to get a good long letter soon with lots
of news in it. You don’t know how much
