Dear Doris

Well the fog has cleared away & this afternoon the sun is shining brightly the wind is in the south & nice out side. the fire alarm rung this forenoon but no one seems to know where the fire was.

Pa is filling up as he cant [[can't]] think what else to do I went to the box yesterday to mail letters & slipped down to Alices [[Alice's]] & got some books to read. Pa would objected to my going if I had told him I was going any father than the box.

I am glad you had a few days of rest at home. it was a change for you at least. the little one must have enjoyed it also.

Myrtie has got a cold so Alice told me, she is subject to colds & would be one to have pneumonia being built the right way. but I dont know where she would go. none of her folks are able to take care of her. its hard to be out in the world at her time of life without a home. I hope Mrs Cutting gets back to normal soon & stays there, she got too tired going home, those cars are either too hot or too cold & its [[it's]] a good

Transcription Notes:
