Dear Tacy, So sorry to hear Laura had the small-pox and you had to be vaccinated. Hope she did not have it very hard and that she is getting along all right.
Am sending a check for $3.00 to you use wherever you most need it.
Ronald wrote me about Laura. Hope this doesn't put her back in her studies at school.
It turned cold last night and we are in a snow blizzard now. We are promised zero weather soon.
Mildred had a baby girl born to her and Clarence Dec. 10th. Both Mildred and baby are doing well.
Love to all, Hannah

We have had some lovely trips around here. To cross this long bridge built across the Bay is quite an experience. We had an aeroplane ride of nearly 80 miles one day. It was a thrilling experience. Every day is summer here. We leave Monday for another place. Hannah
