Jan. 26th 1919 Dear Mande--Received your card this noon. Was out for a walk this morning, took some more pictures. We got back just in time for beans. Didn't get up in time for breakfast yesterday morning so went over to the exchange and bought a few sandwiches. Will write later. Am OK. As ever, Carl.
