Greetings Good Friend: To Mrs. D. Abel, Toledo, IA

[to] Mrs. D. Abel,
Dear Mamma, Just rec'd your card and am so glad you are feeling better but am afraid you will do too much work to be sick again. We had quite a rain here & looks as tho' more might come. I have 26 chicks & 2 more eggs to hatch out of 33 eggs. Isn't that pretty good? I don't believe we will be up Sun. but we might but if it is so I can I am coming up next week. Do you think we could clean house or will there be work with the men there. I wish you could come down here June 1st during the day any way. How many chicks have you now? Maybe I'll get one of those dresses too where i see yours. My iron worked O.K. I din't use a cupful quite, ironed 1 1/2 hr. Goodby must get to work. Love to you, Grace.
