Haven’t felt so very good for the last few days but am better this evening and expect to be all O.K. tomorrow. Wouldn’t do to be sick on pay day.
Only three of our pictures turned out to be good. Two of you and one of Mrs. C. Had one double exposure and two were not exposed at all so it was no fault of the camera. So glad too, for I did want you to have one that would take good pictures.
It’s nice to have Polly nearly well again and it is also mighty sweet of her to take such an interest in our happiness. She knows I’m a lucky Bill and that my future happiness depends upon an unchanging heart and mind and Marie. I have all three so my happiness seems assured.
Next windy day I’m going to keep looking towards Cleveland and should you happen to blow along this way you will find welcome arms awaiting you.
Last two days have been very springy indeed but spect the flannels will come in handy a few times yet this winter.
Tomorrow afternoon, I’m going to “tighten up” the Ford for its next big trip.
I’m happy tonight because there is just one wonderful little girl in all the world to whom I can say – I love you, Dear.
Special so you will get it domani.
The dates associated with most of these letters came from the post mark on the envelope the letters were placed in when the museum received them as a donation. Some of the letters may seem out of place, or out of order because of this. As we have no clear knowledge of exactly when all the letters were written, we have kept them in order of the dates on the envelopes.
