Well my dear girl I hope yore well and feel good. I have been well every since I have been up here. I don’t know how much longer we are going to stay up here yet. I guess it has been just a month since I saw you last.

It is very cold up here. I have made 25 dollars in 18 days. Don’t you see that I am all rite. Don’t you see that I think maybe I will be home next week some time. We boys are working to gather. We are just through where we have been thrashing and we are going one mile east of here.
I think I can make

Are you good when I am gone as you are when I am their? Is Tena and John getting along all rite? I rote and asked John what they were going to call the baby. I have not herd from him yet. I wonder what he thought.
