Dear Friend:

Received your

nice, long letter and was so

glad to hear from you.

Well, how is the weather

up there this week? This

last week the weather here

has been very cold here and

we also had lots of rain.

To-day it is sunshining, and

a little milder, and I am so

glad, for I don't like the cold

to reach home.

Well, we have been busy

been doing our house-cleaning

but it won't be long, before we

will be through.

Now, don't work too hard,
