Well here I am in Meridian and will be here until Sunday evening. As soon as I struck this town I thought of you. I hope you are well. I was in Montgomery 2 weeks and Selma 4 days. What do you think? I did not find a single can of Pet Milk on a grocery shelf there nor did a jobber [sic] have a single case in stock. You bet there will be some there now. Regards to yourself and hubby. Yours etc. L. E. Tyler [sic]
