[Undated and No Location, small fragment, P.S. with closing, may be early letter – ŌThey say I am 700 miles from home it is a beautiful country down hereĶ, back says couldnÕt send cannon cap because stolen]


Ō(P.S.)  Tell Malvina she must read your letters because it seems as if I must write every letter to you  ask her what she ment [sic] by that box in the Post Office and if I can send my letters there just as well it will save you something after a while because I suppose the penny Post fetches them to you

They say I am seven Hundred miles away from home  it is a beautiful country down here you can see every thing most except a woman  I have seen onley [sic] 2 since we iÕve [sic] been here  from yours

[p.2, centered on back] I sealed up that big letter without that Cannon Cap because some one stole it from me and I had to let it go but iÕll [sic] see if I cant get another one for you and send it some time [upside down at bottom] P.S. Ask Mally
