In Largo

Dear Sis & Co.:

We are planning a trip to Tallahassee to see if it is possible to find a place there to live. I signed a contract with the A. C. Horn Co., manufacturers of materials for building maintenance and construction to work in twenty counties with the Florida capitol as my headquarters. The field man that interviewed me in Tampa a week ago last Sunday informed me their men make real money so after giving it some thought decided it was a good deal and signed up.

No word from Lovelock, so going on the old saying no word is good word er something. I feel maybe things have righted themselves. Here is the letter I received from the Masonic Lodge. Please return it.

We are all well and feeling fine.

Here are some pictures you may enjoy looking at.

Love Jim

Monday morning 28 January

Dear Sis & Co. –

We are here, in Florida. It is real warm. Just how long we are going to stay is a big question. I am looking for work and may take a job for a while anyway just to keep from using any of our savings. Of course I hope to get started in the kitchen plumming business after I have a chance to look over the place to make certain there is a large enough field for it here. It will take a few days to see how well we are going to like it here.

Aunt Lizzie is in very good health and of course wants us to remain here with her. She is very happy to have us so it may work out that we will be here for six months or a year.

Love Jim
