Would you be kind enough to write a note or a vaccination certificate for Madelyne and Francis Jr. as Madelyne is entering school Sept. 6th and it is imperative I have some notification that she has been vaccinated. If possible would you make out separate notes. I hate to bother you for this. The date was sometime last Aug.
How is Gladys and all the children?
I sure miss Missouri and would love to be back there. Mont is stationed on Guam and is anxious to get home and see his new little daughter. She’ll be 3 months old tomorrow and just as sweet as can be.
Would love to hear from you

KEPT FROM THE SCHOOLS Terre Haute Children Who Have Not Been Vaccinated.
Two New Smallpox Cases – Troubles of The Liquor Men – State Politics – Electric Cars in Collision.
Special to the Indianapolis Journal.
TERRE HAUTE, Ind., Feb. 20. – More than five hundred pupils of the city schools were turned away to-day because they had not been vaccinated or could not furnish a certificate of a successful vaccination within seven years. It is thought that many of these pupils will be vaccinated.
Two new cases of smallpox have been reported. They had been watched by the health authorities for some days as suspicious cases. The fact that they were under surveillance, as also all who had been exposed to them in the preliminary stages of the disease, gives hope that no other case will be reported form the same exposure. There is only one case in the pesthouse now, that of a traveling man named Arthur McDaniels, who was taken from one of the hotels at this own request.
