Dear Sister,

I will write you a letter telling you about my tripe Thursday. Me and my husband went to Lake Lurie to see the President of the United States. We injoyed our trip fine and say several new things. We say an old fashon Loom weaving rugs. We say Chimley Rock that was beautiful. It was cool and pleasant down there, so we hade a nice time.

Yours truly,

Lurcie Harris
