I am going home day after tomorrow

I already feel the thrill of t[illegible] shakes and deep speaking looks Hickory Hill b[illegible] fan my face. I can see the dignified wave of these well know oaks -------- --- ------- ------- -------- these nine weeks vacation I shall not be in a hold-yarn mood but you know I shall be happy to find a letter at "Midland from you ---- Ma[qutter?] County I have not heard from Wisconsin" the mourning ones since I wrote you before bye --------
