Dear Milton, I shipped eggs today. They seem to be rather small, but they are all from one farm and fresh. Not many coming in. Russell left - Monday for a months holiday via Detroit, Chicago, Rochester Minn., Calgary and Vancouver. We heard Lulu sold the big house, or at least that Mrs. Lovelle had notice to vacate. Love to all, Grandpa.
