Enclosed is Date's letter and picture as now, Lena.

Dear Folks:

There doesn't seem to be much to write this week.  Last Sat. I went out to the home of one of our girls in Watertown to the 1911 reunion.  I took my bureau scarf along with me thinking that I might be bored to death if I stayed into the evening with nothing to do.  I was the only one who brought work and although I did sew somewhat the time really did pass quickly and I had a very good time.  Coming home Daisy got in the car at Miss [[?A]] so I had her to come home with.  She and Oren had been to a show and he was seeing her on the [[?]].  She said she was going to [[?]] Sunday.  I was not feeling lively enough to go to church and in the P.M. I thought our sitting room looked as attractive with the evergreens, wreaths poinsettias and sunshine that Oren would enjoy it better than his bedroom so I telephoned over and he came about 2.30 but by that time the sun no longer shone in brightly, however he stayed to supper and ate of cream of tartar biscuit that didn't rise well, pineapples, chocolate cake and fudge.  I hope he survived.  I tried to call Daisy up
