Dear Son. Glad to know you landed safely.
We are all well, still have hot dry weather. Daddy is
working at Carlisle now, has three leases. We may move down there.
The children will start too school in two weeks. Donald has
picked cotton, two days. Uncle Will Hale come to visit. Jean went home
with him, she is back home now. She had a nice time. I got the picture
you sent, its real good. Thanks a lot, we are so glad to have it, I got
a nice frame for it. J.C. is home. We saw him at S.S. this morn. gave
him your picture, he hasn't changed one bit. I am still keeping Paul Jr.
Octa was home last week, she is working again, she had a nice letter
from Paul. Write soon.
