Dear Folks,


Will write you a few words now, while I have the chance. Received that package from you Ray and Cap. Also got that letter of yours Ray with them (sic) pictures of your football team and all. They really were nice and the brushes to is one thing can really use (sic) when we get to someplace we can stay for awhile. All I can send you in return is like useral (sp) a humble little “thank you”. I just sent home another forty dollars. Hope that Ray has gotten that letter telling him to take ten dollars for his birthday. Yes, time sure flies doesn’t it another year is past. We have a lot of things to be thankful for in the past year but have also seen a lot of things I hope and pray I’ll never see again. Imagine you are having plenty cold weather. Getting quite a bit colder here too. Have just enough snow to cover the ground and the ground sure stays froze now. Hoping this finds all of you feeling fine. I’m thankful I can still say the same for myself. May God’s richest blessing be yours.



Your son & brother,
