Dear Sister—Many thanks
for your good letter—I heard
from Mame Gilchrist—Mrs. Huston
Mollie E, Ella’s girls—Allie
Wherrett & others. Christmas. It
was a great joy—Frank K. made
us a short visit—on Tues.—I was
glad their farm sold so well,
$245—so per acre—Bertha has
taken the farm she is on for another
yr.—Lara & Frank send love.
They are going old & so am
I. Times are hard with us—
but we get enough coal. Do
write again—with love—Bal.
