Dear Friend, I failed to see you
Tuesday or Wednesday.
Elvin was pretty blue
because he get to see at all.
You would have got an auto ride
sure if we could have found you
we went up to Wassenaar from Winona
Tuesday and Wednesday P.M.
We have a Ford machine now
and if you will come to Claypool
Elvin will come over and get you.
I wish you could come soon.
Tell Mr D I’m homesick to see him.
Elvin is very proud of his postcard.
