Carrie Blodgett to Katherine Fletcher, [circa 1886] May 10
I recieved your kind & welcomed letter, and am ashamed of my-self for not writting but could not find time to, have set a number of days to write, but something would hapen & I could not, and thought I would set up until mid-night I could not get it done before
I have written a letter to Gertie [Whitcome] to night
You did not say any thing about your Comeson and do not know what has become of
it. I have thought of that many & many of times and would like some of
good time's we used to have especially riding on trucks.
Do you remember the time you and Ethel Kinsley were sliding on the hill by Mr
Bucker's. I asked Nell [ ] if she had been out
sliding, she said "No indeed I have not, do you suppose I would be seen
sliding." and I thought if she had always remembered that, and had done no worse
she would be thought more off. now you must not tell what I say about her, for
she does not like me any better than I do her, I wish Clarence's coat tail would
break and let her down would like to see her fall, I thought she and Willie had
gone through before this time, if he was not one of the best of boys he would
have not any thing to do with her (and some of them would not)
Well, I guess I shall have to close for this time, hope you will excuse poor writting and spelling for I am getting sleepy. write soon.
PS. Please tell Peter, I have got that candy [yet].
