Dear Mother and Daddy:
As I have had so many odds and ends to do today, I will not have time to write but about three lines. We got news this morning about ten that the mail would close tomorrow afternoon, which means that we must send our mail this afternoon, and today is Saturday. However, Dot has written you several pages, and I believe has given you all the important news. Everything is running along smoothly enough. We had a birthday, as you no doubt know, on the 7th inst. and celebrated by taking a little trip down to the farm and out in the woods, spending the afternoon that way; we had a pleasant afternoon, and that night we dressed up in our wedding clothes.
We are expecting some mail in the near future. So we will be writing you again in the very near future.
With lots of love to all.
