The new brooder beats lamp brooding all to pieces.     Daddy is working at the city clerk s office with Mr. Hutchins, this week. I don t know how long the work will last.     There isn t any news here and the chickens and everything keeps me so busy. I don t know what to do first.     We all send lots of love your loving Mamma" And this final note was written in at the top of the letter: "I will send you some change soon."Letter was written on the front and back of a single page.
