Etola Robinson, Dec 23, 1908
Dec. 23 -08
Will try and write you a letter. don't know as I have much to write or much time to write it as I want to get this off on the next mail.
Am sending you and Tamerson little remembrance which I beg you do axcept with my love and good wishes of the season.
Am feeling better than when I last wrote the Reheumatism has left me but my sholders get tired with very little work.
I recd some presents from S. B. yesterday. Sarah sent me white goods for a waist, Amelia some collar pins and Mrs. Northam a sweeping cap, all very pretty.
My Christmas ahs commenced early. Have an invitation out to christmas dinner and am going to Woolseys to spend new years.
Expect you will have to cook your own dinner. Wish I could be there to help you get it and to eat with you. wouldent we have one good old time?
Well I shall have to close and get this to the office. will write at greater length after holidays.
With good wishes to all I am as ever your loveingly yours. Toley
If you do not like your puffs send them back + I will try to sell them for you. or if your hair is grown darker so they are not a good match, and you do like them send me some new combings and will make you another set. I left one of them done up so you could see how to cirl tham. the ought to hold the cirl for a few days I think. do each puff seperately. I did not get them devided very evenly maby you can do a better job next time they are done.
have not time to write more now as ever your loving friend
When and why did Toley move to Oklahoma? Is she nursing, sewing or doing something else.
Try as hard as I might, I can not form a mental image of the "puffs" that she sent Tamerson.
