Dear Folks,

 

We are in this burg (town or city) today.

Are feeling fine.

Have seen marrcons(?), Runnels (a narrow channel in the ground for liquid to flow through) and leookus (?).

Say Papa, will you go to Lincoln & Tharp (hardware company in Lushton, Nebraska) and get us a rear Ford tire 30 - 3 ½?  Racine Tires are $23.50 here.

Send it immediately if it is less than $23.50 by express

 

Howard
