I will write a few lines to you. also to May. How do you feel now. do you have those awful paines in you sides. How is your cough is it as bad as before. Is it as bad to take this medicine as the other was?
Is there very many parks out and are you now near one. It is pretty nice out here. Aunt Cora's throat is a little better and Dr. has given her some medicine which is very nice. We have got lots of company-
now in our house. The company is Don and his mother Annie, and we think Rob and his wife will be up to. Annie is very sick and I have to go to the drug store every little while. I think this is all.
I will write a few lines to you. I am getting along alright. Is it warm enough out there to go barefoot. If it is I will go barefoot nearly all of the time.
When Aunt Cora was out I was in the front room with my big double bladed knive ready to spear them if they made a move at me.
