Full Text

if I haven't got so much money & a job. Glad to know Terassy's eyes are bettter. Will she have to wear glasses all the time or just for a while. Reckon Polly is over her cold long ago. She wrote me a good long letter & I was glad to get it. You ask me how I expect to spend Chirstmas. Well we have not made any big arrangement. We are going to have a little exra for dinner tomorrow evening maybe. I am going over to take dinner with Unkie & Auntie this evening. I stopped in there yesterday & found Myrta in bed. The Methodist Preacher had just left as I came up & John had been entertaining him. Mytra did not let John bring him in her room & John had to take care of him himself. Myrta laughed & told me about John trying to entertain him. Said it seemed to her like they would set for 10 minutes at a stretch & neither one say a word. John said it was his first experience in handling a preacher & he didn't know how to go about it. Will tell you what was wrong with Mytra. Day before yesterday she & John climbed Columbia Mountain. John tried to get her to go slow & take it easy but she wanted to beat him to the summit & she did. She paid for her haste with a sick headache yesterday. She was about O.K. when I saw here yesterday evening.
