May 2nd, 1918.
Mr George Tyler,
1717 Eye Street,
Washington, D.C.
My dear George:-
This is to let you know that I expect to sail on the 8th; if I say I expect it is because the exact date of sailing is never known except a day or two in advance and I beg you to let me know whrther you still wish me to take with me your trunk and valise.  
I know that you will be pleased to hear that I have excellent news from my boy.
With all kinds of kind messages to the entire Tyler family, believe me as ever,
Most cordialy yours,

should be "whether" but spelled "whrther" in text
