Dear Uncle Bud,
We appreciated your nice letter so much. I talked to Billie last night, she said she hadn't seen you for a while, but was going to right away we will be up before too long and plan on visiting with you. I will let you know when we will be there. Hope you are feeling better. Don't try to do too much. Take it easy. I have some sewing I want to do before we leave for up there. Love, Marie

We appreciated receiving your card at holiday time. It meant much to me personally. I received good wishes from several brothers who had seen the reference to me in the Calendar. I also got a nice floral piece from Amity Lodge. Ovid Holmes former of Htgn. & now living in Pompano Beach near here called on me personally, having seen my name in the Calendar. It's a wide world, and it's nice to be remembered when you've been in the hospital. Am getting along O.K. & feeling fine.
