Dear old Pal:

My sister, Edna, is planning to go to Nevada for a while in order to recuperate, and I have advised her to see you with reference to a convenient spot in which to reside, and one from which she can get from time to time from the state into California. You may perhaps know of a family, a boarding place and a pleasant town in which to live. Please advise [[write use?]] her and greatly oblige,

Your old time friend,
