Miss Johnnie Downer:
Dearest Sister how are you this rainy day? It rained yesterday evening and nearly all night and it is still raining.
Say don't you like my paper? Johnnie I sure am proud that you are coming home.
You said you were going to have to take some [calmul ?]. I think that I am too. I sure do hate to. But I sure do feel bad.
Johnnie I know three more verses of "It Ain't Gona Rain No Mo" than you sent.
Well I will close.
