[Postmark: Indianapolis, Ind., 23 February 1912, 2 PM]

Address: Mrs. J.W. Hackleman, R.R. No. 3, Connersville, Ind.

2.22.12
My Dear Lena: Heard from a
recent letter that you have a
new auto. Congratulations. How
does this blizzard seem in country
Wed. a.m. hundreds of women [?]
week had to walk through 14
or 15 in drifted snow, 10 to 15 [squares?]
to work. Only two car lines working
& they kept snow scrapers at work
on track all night  Y & F were lucky
in living on one of these lines.
Ill think I never seen a worse
blizzard. Love—Bal.
