1 Dear Sis,
3 I am so glad our our Will’s success.
5 The doctor says I must get away some where but I don’t know if I can.
6 If I should wire to you that I was coming any time would you promise
7me to wire me back if its not convenient I’ve got so weak I’m not
8doing any work, & its so terrible when day after day passes & I’m
9not earning anything.
11 I feel as if just a look at you all would do me good, & I should be
12better when I came back.
14 Your little sis
15 Olive
