Halloo Sweetheart
What are you doing for a good time long now? I am staying at home. I haven't worked any in about three weeks. I don't know were I will ever go back or not. I was sorry you did not stop here when you passed through this city. I met no 44 but Lena was not to be seen. Mr. O. said if you would be here over night he would come over. He was out here last Sunday a week ago. I enjoyed his call very much. Lena you must come down when you can. Mr. O. said tell you everthing good. I know you have heard from him before this time he said he was going to send you a card.
