My Dearest Ruth:
Your apple is demolished and I am just going out to eat something more, as it is
now about 3 minutes to 12. Hope your early morning ride gave you a “big” appetite and
that Bob has amused himself for awhile at the washing machine.
Must say good-bye as noon has come and will have to mail this now for you to
receive it tonight, as I want to send you much love and many kisses for this evening.
Take good care of yourself Dear and please tell me if your back troubles you and I
will bring you some more Scotts.
As ever your
