  • Content Description: They received their letter and happy to hear they are doing well. She mentions that her family is also well. She then talks about the weather they have been having. Although it has been raining the springs and wells are going dry. Abe had a well drilled close to the house, but could not keep it close to the house because of gas. A new well was between the barn and the spring, but again there was gas in it. Florence was watching a little girl. Mat Nay or Mat Frankland died. She mentions that owls have been taking her turkeys. Dinky sold her other cow. She comments on Linnet being so helpful and Birdie as well. She asks that they write soon. Alice writes about the subjects she is learning in school and how she wishes Linnet was there to play with her and Birdie. She mentions that her mother is going to town and what happened to Mary Dodd in the orchard.
