Dear Papa -

I got your letter of the 10th yesterday, and am so glad you are getting stonger. We are all well here. I'm not doing much, so dont worry. By now you have received my letter asking to board at Mrs F.'s
The weather is beautiful and sunny. Yesterday afternoon was grand and warm. The cottonwoods along the ditch are budding out.
Im glad the trade is going well, I'll write tomorrow.

Always lovingly
