Dear Mary & Family:

Will send you a card of my old home see slip if you don’t know them. All well. Oats in the garden my shanty cleaned thought would see you at border but couldn’t go was sorry will try & write more next time. Cold easter here. Mrs. Hunter fell & hurt her left arm so has both lame is about the same girl is there yet. We are going to town today if we ever get started have 35 dozen eggs to get ready also some butter was glad to get your letter but Elma was awful sick & helped her and am doing her sewing so neglected to write. Hope to hear from you soon. Your friend Carrie.
