Thursday 1:40 P.M.[1]

Dear Sister

I’ve just written letter to Lela[2] & enclosed money & sample for 2 yds more of mull. Then thinking that there was a possibility of her not being at the office to morrow (sent Letter to office) thought best to let you know and be sure of it. It is too bad I did not order enough in the first place, but I calculated on goods 1 yd wide and this is only 31 in. so that makes quite a difference. Yours in haste & with love.


Immortality divine,
True life is mine.
Worlds full of sorrow
Can not hinder thine.
Love and enjoy,
Let no trouble annoy.
And lifes milestones of pleasure,
Will ever be thine.

One of some Floyd’s[3] wrote last Sunday.[4]
