June 20th 19'

My dearest Douglas.

We haven't heard from you since June 8th and you seem pretty far away from us-  I expect it takes much longer for letters to come from Belgium-

I have written every other day- the letters ought to get to get to Morgan Harjes by themselves!

It has rained to day- & I have been busy in the kitchen- as Eva was not well-  I made a fine strawberry shortcake for dinner.  Jerry is painting the Canal- and is trying to get it in shape so Randell can enjoy it

[[margin]]with it-  How far it has to travel to reach you & then it only speaks for the days duties here.  Our little home affairs-  Good night dearest.
