[Page 4] To receive your breezy snatchy epistles. They assure us you are still in the land of the living, and that is much and more is to be learned than that (to be honest) for you have the gift of packing away a good deal of thought in a few words, and in your stingy compass you manage to give us all full assurance that we hold a warm place in your regard. We are all well here. The “lovely lily grandmother” as you gracefully style her, is stronger than when you saw her last, and she remembers you with warm regard, as do my brother Victor and his wife, and all. Next time you come we would like to have you come directly to our home, and visit your other friends [ ] [ ] [ ] at 611 N. Meridian Street. Very sincerely and cordially your friend Eliza S. Hendricks 611 N. Meridian St.
