Dear Daughter & Family,
I will try to answer your kind & most wellcome letter. We are as well as can be expected. I am pretty well for me. My eye hurt me awful bad yesterday but it is better today.
The relations is all well as far as I know. You said something about coming to Spokane. I wish you would come. I am thinking about going home with you if you have got room for me. I don't want to crowd you out of house & home. We have not heard from Billie & Grace. Yet I had a letter from Mary Spears, at last she has been trading places & she said her health was lots better than it was.
I haven't had a letter from Nora Fulgham for along time. I don't know what is the matter with her that she doesn't right to me.
I will have a birthday the 28th of this month. I will be 82 yrs old. I am awful hard of hearing. I can't under stand common talk hardly at all. I don't know what will bee come of me but the good Lord knows all things & I am in his care & he said his grace is sufficient & I believe his word is truth. Well Florence bee shure to come if you can. From your loving mother to Florence & family. Remember me in your prayers.
