Richview, Ill.
Jan. 8, 1911.

Dear Aunt Alice:-

I know you will be glad to know that I joined the Ancient order of Married Folk on Thursday, January the fifth. I am here in Richview with my husband. My aunt is staying with Maria and I expect I may have to return to Pleasant Hill when the "honeymoon" is over.
So you may think of me as leading a double life. between Richview, Ill & Pleasant Hill, MO.  We were married at Mt Vernon at five o'clock Thursday afternoon
