Dearest Allie:

Skinney came down last eve. bringing a large cooker, out, of her elec. stove about 2/3, rd, full of grand stew she'd made out of your donations, lamb stew, which she had on simmering most of the day. She told me she had made enough stew for a Russian Army and she'd put everything in but the kitchen sink and that, ,was,, too clean. Wish you'd been here to help eat a lot too.

The kid gave me this stamp. She'd took it from Roy which he'd rec'd from his Mother just before leaving. Think there was at least 3 of 'em. Haven't found mine yet.

Yes! We've got "Black Beauty" after Dad had breakfast. The, [Times"?], come next when he begins to pull off specks and fold paper. Both dogs bounce two feet and, [hug?], close to Dad, so tight he can hardly walk, and they go out together or in, bunch, and Dad, he chuckles and laughs like a school boy. [Lantor?], insisted on sleeping with Dad, while Kingly, [illegible], slept by the fire. When Wash" got up at 2 o'clock, dogs must go out too.
