November 9 1908
This is a sunney morning and finds me feeling well and cheerful. The grapes reached us in good shape and we are still feasting, but I suppose they will be about the last. Has your typewriter man come? And how are you? Im gaining in weight - am 137 lbs in the same clothes I weighed 122 lbs last August. I hope to reach 140 - All goes well - the hay is all off now.
I must go up town now and mail this for No 3 - Write and tell me all the home news.
