April 21st Dear Annie, Don't worry about us. The tornado did not come this far west. I wrote to Mama this morning but I did not know about the storm then. So you can tell her we are allright. I think from the paper the storm must have been terrible. We are all well. Frances went to school today. Hope you are well. With love from Faye.
