Dear Mother-

Well I suppose you are lonesome without Dad. He seems to enjoy himself quite well here. He lays a bed until seven o’clock and sits up until nine.

We had a nice lot of Xmas presents. Edward’s tree looks nice. Mary got fifty cents worth of decorations for it and I got him a red rubber dog, Rena a teddy bear, Mr.G two books, Edward Carroll a book and rubber ball, Helena a bonnet, Nellie Jewell a celluloid elephant and a bag of candy from the Sunday school.

The things that came from home was best of all. His knife and fork and spoon are lovely.

Sweet Mary has gone to Concord today to have some tooth filled. It is raining a little so she may get her fine feathers wet.

Percy has just gone to take the tester to the train. Catrina didn;t do as well as we expected. Her largest days milk was ninety five, she made 19.819 butter fat and gave 615 lb. of milk.

Mary, the tester and  I went up to the school house Xmas tree. We had a good time.

Dear Ma and Leland

I will write you another time today.

I have been away from home for six days and this makes five times that  I have written home and not a word from you only what you wrote to Leila the day I left. I think that is just the way to do. It has rained here all day and I did not go to Concord but may go tomorrow.

I think Queen Veeman Wayn did pretty well don’t you? I priced him at $1,000 to the man in Poland, but did not give hie things any price, but refused what he offered.

I think I will leave here Father’s Day and come home Tuesday.

Mary is pleasant part of the time and part of the time a little short. She looked like the fifth calf when I gave them their presents.

Well I can’t think of any more this time so goodbye with Love,
