My Dear Son,

…He [Stanley] said they made $600 month before last and $500 last month. He says he went to a poor mans house. He did not want to go. Had only one bed. But he says he made $85 out of going. He took the man's 4 cows and sold them before he got them to the pasture. I told Papa about it. He thought that was an awful thing to do to a poor man. I thought it was strange that Stanley did not go in partners when there was all that money to be made there.

Mrs. Gornal is going to get them a piece of furniture. She said Mrs. B. got John such a beautiful piece that she would have to get him something nice. Stanley looked through this house. He said he would like to steal it. He thought it very nice.

Your loving Mother
