Dear Chloe and Ann:
Mr. Morris would like to know if you have sent the weavings to Miss Hess yet. Just drop me a card.

Thanks for the “Dye Pot and Loom” announcements or what ever you call them. They are very interesting. I’ll try to drop them where they will do the most good. —-

Dear Anna:

Mr. Lay called yesterday on the telephone and asked us to get word to you to go to Middlesboro Monday to register and to stop by his office on the way to see if there were others who wanted to go with you so you could all share the expense.

Hope you can straighten out the above [i]nvolved sentence.

Dear Ann and Chloe:

This is just a little note to see if  Joan [Ayers] put you straight or told you about the curtain material which Miss [Margaret] Motter wants. If there are any questions in your minds about it, just drop me a line.
