Dear Sister Edith:

We received the box of apples & we never seen anything like them & they came through in such good condition, as you had them packed so good. There wasn't only 3 or 4 that was only brusied a little. We never seen such large nice apples. I never knew that you could raise apples there & I often thought I would like to send you a box from here, but since you have shown me a sample of yours, mine would look like small potatoes. We have only eaten one so far, as we think them more of a curiosity & like to look at them & want to keep them as long as we can. Sarah gave her folks one apiece

& Aunt Lues, one each. I think more favorable of Cal. now, than before, & hope some time to see it, & perhaps, locate there. I am still paying on our place here, so I haven't got any money to invest. If I had, I don't know of anything better that I would like to invest in than some real estate out there. I don't think John would invest, as he isn't inclined to be an investor, & never speculates.

Edith, about Aunt Marys estate, what little each one of us get, I don't think will amount to very much. I don't know, but I think if each gets a hundred or $150.00 at the most, we will do well, & you are the one to be Jack's administrater. I haven't heard much about it, only what Amy has told me, & I don't think we will until it comes for the estate to be divided up, after farm is sold.

If Katie makes you any trouble you could have her arrested, but that I wouldn't do, arrest my own sister, if there is any other way. But I would tell her that as a bluff & perhaps, she will be scared & let you alone. I often wonder if she is in her right mind. What do you think about it?

Today, after I finish this, I am going to mail you a package that Sarah has fixed up for you all, just a little rememberence for Xmas. Sorry that we can't do better, so hope you will accept this with our all good intentions with a merry Xmas & a happy & prosperous new year & lots of them. Sarah is quite miserable with gripp & cold & her mother is poorly
