Dear Cousin Susie

I will try and write you a few lines this evening to let you know our address we are at Yates MO Susie did you get my card that I mailed at Stahl

Well Susie have you had much rain down there. We have plenty here. Well we live about 1 mile from school and live close to Sunday School They have Church every Sunday night and prayer meeting every Friday night so we have plenty to go to.

Well Susie how are you all getting along We are all as well as usual Well I am going to tell you how we are located we have four rooms in our house and we live just a crost the road from the railroad so we can’t get lonesome.
