Dear Children

 

            We got Back Home OK  Was gone 2 Weeks to Little Rock and Atkins (Ark.) and Hot Springs and other places on our way back home. Found all well. Kittie Brown came Home with us. I am so tired I can't write. I have Been cutting oats all Week and will not get threw tom- I am afraid. We cut 10 to 12 acres per day. I never Have worked so hard In my Life. Joe (Hogan) and I make about 4 negros, Every Day. Dear Boy I understand you can get a Ticket Here to San Francisco, Cal. For $38.00 and Return. I will Look into the matter and write more about It. I want you to come Home as Quickly as Possible. The Bond is in Question and If you show up that is the End of It to my mind. Lots of Love.
