My dear Ina,
Excuse this stationery but I am out and within an hour I expect to leave the city for Mississippi. Will be at Jacksonville Fla. on the 21st. Will stop at home for a longer period when I return. The enclosed photos look pretty rough but a week ago the lawn was tall Johnson grass. Bought some shrubs today and he will take care of them and guarantee them to live. Will wait until December to set out some fruit trees, roses, etc.
Excuse this short note but I must hurry. Can’t let my train leave me this time.
