We will catch the Kate at Friars Point Wed. If we get in Memp by 10 o'clock we want to go out home. Meet us and put us on the car. ""See?"" We are in Clarksdale, at the drug store. Came in the machine and had a blow out but we got here just the same. I would write more but a friend won't let me. Margaret [sic]
