Nov. 13 -48 Hi Kid, Hows everything with you by now? All ok here. My girls are in school. Guess you are too. How's Ouida and Wilma? Also Sonny? Tell them I said hello. I spent Sun. with Mama and Bertie. Made some quince preserves last night. Sure are good. Why don't you come sometime. I'd be so glad to have you by now. Be sweet. Write your cousin. Loudia [sic]
