Dear Sister I rec. your letter today + was glad to hear from you. I got a letter from Frank George today + he says that my corn is good + the corn around here is good + the wheat is turning out well all the way from 20 to 30 bushells to the acre. I will work about three weeks yet if I can + then I will go home + cut up my feed. Maybe I’ll stay at home all fall. I don’t know when I will come up there. What is John doing + how is all the folks getting along?
