Dear Mabel, I don't think much of you for not letting me know were down here until you went back. Why don't you write me a bit of errol Gossip once in awhile--I don't hear from there very often since the folks moved away. Guess you must have known E-- was away most of the time why you didn't come up. Blanche [sic]
