My Dear Son,

…Glad to hear you arrived all right. Sorry to hear your landlady went back on you. Perhaps you ought to have written sooner about it. Hope you have found a better one.

We have been lonesome since you went away but I realize how much better it is for you to be at your studies and accomplish the desires of your heart, a star in your profession. I am thankful that you have the opportunity to become such.

I hope you had a nice trip and that your lunch did not get stale. Tell us all when you write.

Papa had a fine trip last one, like he had when you were on. He will be in in the morning as this is Sunday. I am alone and I have rested the greater part of the day. Papa was at Gornals. Mrs. G. said she never saw you looking as well. Jim said man but Walter got to be a big fellow. What shoulders he has got.

I have not seen any of B.'s since you left. This is fair week, I suppose we will have to take it in. There is nothing new here since you went away.…

Your loving Mother
