Lena’s Postcards #99 – Balzora Scofield

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

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

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.

Dear John and Lena –
We have been having a fine time since we left home but missed you to help carry the luggage. We are at George’s but leave here Thursday for Cal. Will send you a card when we get there. We are both feeling much better than when we left home. If you had your apples here you could get something for them. They are selling for 30 cts. per doz.
Our best love to you both
