Dear Friend, Well how is everything up there. I am having a good time down here and like it first rate only it has been awful dry down here. The only area I saw from up there since I have been down here was Fern Sloniker and Mabel Rossman when they was at Oshkosh to summer school. But have enough to do to keep from acting lonesome.
