My dear daughter

In answer to your kind letter to me yesterday, I am pleased to hear ther you and the children are quite well, you ask if I am coming home soon, why I have only been back just over a week but will try and get home again a week from next Friday. What makes you so lonesome Olive. I can tell you, you do not help our mother enough and she being sick I would think that you would only be too pleased to do everything for her and you would find the time would pass more pleasantly than laying around and idling your time away and I would like you to clean my records up every once and awhile and be careful in handling them as they cost money. I am sorry Olive you have had a bad cold and I hope it is better by the time you get this letter. We have had some severe cold weather here and lots of snow and as the bear saw its shadow today, we will surely have six weeks more winter. Now do try and help your mother while she is sick as you know yourself when you are sick you like to take a rest yourself, now do not forget Olive what I say if you do more work you will not feel so lonesome. So goodbye. I will soon [damaged area on letter] for good, then you will wish that you was lonesome. Kiss the boys for me. xxxxxxx

Yours affectionate

Father xxx
