My Dear Girl
I am going to write this postal and run the risk of getting a chance to send it. Got a letter from Lou last eve, she is in bed. Dr says she must not try to walk for several weeks. I think she is getting along. I asked you to go to S- Sat-. Hearing from her, I feel different about it. You can come up here if you like. Fetch a couple of cars if you come.
I will write a little. Ma has got a very bad L & F had to open it this morning. When she has to move it makes her groen. She looks bad. I must go to work.
 Her daughter, Louese (Keith) Harris
 Shelbyville, Michigan, where Lou lived
 Her daughter Hannah (Keith) Towne wrote this last paragraph
