Stoughton F. 25th" 1932

Dear Doris

The cold weather still hangs on + I hope no more snow comes tonight for the air feels very chilly & the sky seems overcast.  I have had a good day to dry my clothes no wind to tear them on the line but plenty of good sunshine to whiten them, while zero weather lasts  people have had a good week to harvest a fine crop of ice, so they dont have to worry any on that  score.

This afternoon Talbot came up to call on Pa.  he stayed untill suppertime & Pa was very quiet through out his visit & we carried on the conversation.  he is a good talker & has his original ideas.  he said he thought that the Chinese were putting up a pretty good resistance & that the Japs were about exhausting their resources.  he dont believe our country are going to get into any trouble with them.  they are to much gone already, the old greedy things  My sympathy are with the Chinese of course the Japs know the most, but I hope this war will teach them a good leson, if they get beaten good.  the same as it has Germany, another greedy country who bit off more than they could chew.
