My own dearest Wife, Ruthy:

I received your Sunday letter this morning and was more than pleased to know that
all is well at home. I am very well. The boys are soft and have colds in noses. It is now 5 P.
M. and we are all cleaned up here ready to leave for New Orleans and take this
opportunity to write my love message as at bed time, the hour I like best for communing
with my sweetheart, will be on a bumpety old sleeper, thinking of you dearest but unable to

Have made connections here booking some business, but promising enough to pay
entire expense of trip before the year is out. 

I am writing Stellen to fix up my auto business (notes) in case I am not home on

Have nothing special to tell you as it is less considerable than 24 hours since I
wrote you last.

What I want most of anything on earth, Dear, is you. I want to be with you again. It

others arms again — and I know you feel the same.

My next letter to you Dearie will be from New Orleans, and I hope then to tell you
definitely when the glad hour of return will be. Good bye Dearest, Sweetest girlie in all the
world. Kiss & hug all the babies for me.
