Dear Miss Lad and Maggie:-
Was so glad to get your letter yesterday &
to know how you all are. Tell Grandma we went around to Uncle Jesse's
Wednesday night. It was rather late and they had nearly gone to bed.
Had a nice visit. Uncle Jesse doesn't look natural with his mustache
off. Aunt Lizzie had all of her upper teeth drawn. Grace Lewis
& Rena Lou had a great time playing but Sunny Scott went to sleep in
Uncle Jesse's lap.
Irly Hardin spent yesterday with us. She had come up with guy to a Mason to do.
Tell Maggie it has relieved me terribly to know how her affairs are progressing.
Even if the Jeffers do come, I think you ought to let Maggie come up two or three days the first of the week. Papa & Walter are anxious for me to come on so I'm going to leave Friday & go straight there by way of St Louis. Stith is going with me for a visit to Papa & will be such a help with the children.
The children are looking so well & eat like pigs. Son says tell Mago he's saving hugs for her and for her to come and get them.
Tonight David is going to take me to see Fritzi Schiff at McCauleys. It has rained so hard all day and I've been tired after washing and having company yesterday.
Hoping to hear from you soon. With love, Ruth
Did Aunt Minnie get the bed and where did she say the money would be forth coming? Did Gill buy the stove? How is Cousin Johnnie? Any news at Payne's. I want Maggie to be sure and come up Tuesday if anything prevents you all from coming - Son says he's got to see Mago. R.
