Dear John

Another Birth-Day of yours, has come and gone, I have been spared to see your fifty first year, and I congratulate you and hope you will be spared to see many happy years yet to come I went off this afternoon to the woods across the Rail Road track to look for a spring flower to send you, but have only found these



I hope your and family are all well, and also Mr. & Mrs Strentzel I have not been as well as usual this spring but for the last two weeks I am nearly quite well again I can now walk about as far as I used to do We are all well as usual here

Sincere love to all
