Dear Aunt Anna and Grandma

I thought I would write you a few lines to let you know that I am still among the living I suppose you have been looking for me to come and make you a visit as I intended to but I was delayed in Niles two weeks when I only intended to stay one Lenora had so much sewing to do that I couldn't get through in time to go to Buchanan then Benj came and he only had from Monday until

Friday night so we could only stay one day at a place and he wanted to see all of his Auntes and cousins so we dident have the time to stop but next summer we will make you twice glad as Benj intends to have a longer vacation no matter what happens 5 days out of 365 isent very long how are you all getting along I see Tollie every day she sayes she dont believe she will go to Buchanan this summer Well I must close

With love to all I am
Your Loving Neice
Give my love to Grandma
