My Dear Son,

…I have a good many pullets laying. Someone got your old pet hen that fetched chickens out so early. I will set chickens if you come home.

Mrs. B. says you told her you might never come back anymore. I have not seen them for sometime. She has been to Cole Camp again.

Glad to hear you are so brave in performing operations. You ought to make a fine surgeon. Tender but brave. How often do you perform operations. We like to hear about them. Glad you are getting along with your embryo. Hope you will get it finished. It would be too bad if you didn't.…

Your loving Mother
