I will not write any moore this time, perhaps you will not get this. John, I have no idea that you will get out this fall, still, I hope to the contrary. Eddie wants to know if pa comes home if he will let him go in a-swimming with the Smiths boys. I let him go down to the creek to day with the boyes.
Good night for this time, dear husband, how long it is since we last seene each other? the thought of meeting again, how it revives me up to think that there is a probability of our meeting again soon. I will not write again untill I hear from you.
Your affectionate wife,
The musquitoes are awfully thick to night.
we had annother rain last night…….
