My dear Calvin,

Here's to ye me darling wishing you every best wish on your natal day. I wish I could write you a birthday letter, but am rather tired. I washed my curtains and got the dinner this morning, went to the Hospital this afternoon and am going to teach the Jews to-night so I have been somewhat busy. Hilda spent the morning with Mamma trying to get her a bonnet was out selling tickets for Y.W.C.A. and wishes one to send her best love and wishes and to say that although she is too tired to write, thinksof you just the same. Well as the Jew time has come must absquatulate,

Your loving sister
