March 25, 1924
I find the time has arrived for the Cousins letter, and I am sure we
are all anxious to get our letter in the mail.
Spring has come. The robins are singing this morning. I am always glad to be alive these days.
Mahlon is working in the Wellsboro [RR] Station at present but they still live at Asaph.
I have been very well this winter, -- much better than last.
We will soon be making gardens and how I do enjoy seeing things grow, especially the vegetables which I can for winter use1.
I wish we might get a visit from some of the western people2, -- there are so many of our Cousins who are strangers to us.
I want the Cousins to know that if they will come, there is a welcome
Love to all.
1. Refrigeration, other than ice boxes, wasn't available --- at home or in stores.
2. 'Western' included the cousins in MI, MN, WI & IL, not just those in OR and CA.
