Thursday, 7 30 P.M.

Dear Edith - We are getting pretty well straitened around. Johnie had to go down town on an errand this P.M. and on to Montabello. and I washed my face and changed my dress, and have been resting all the P.M. Just got up to write you a little and say I do hope you will not send for the table as it is old and will cost you so much to get it to you, and you have no room or need of it as I can see, and Johnie and I bowth think you will be very foolish to get the book case as Geo, can make you a nicer one when you get ready for one, for 1/2 the money.
