Enclosed please find a note against Charles Anderson for $100 on which is due the principal and int. at 10 per ct from date. If your Father wants more I will send it. I think there is a poor sight for wood chopping just now. If you can get any one to chop handily do so if not let it go. My cousin takes possession the first of April so I am not so particular about it. When I see him again I will learn his calculations & advise you.
Do you have any offer for the place? Aunt Patty says ask Luke if Lois is coming down here this spring and have him write right off. If she is coming she wants to know it – if not she wants to know – she adds have her come without fail.
We are totally well. Marian is a little out of health, but is now getting better – will be around again in a few days we think.
What do you mean by saying “Hellens Walter is dead”? who is or was “Walter“?
Write about Lois the same day you get this so say Aunt Patty.
We are having fair winter weather – good sleighing.
