I will just write a line to let you know how matters are going. –

I shall probarbly get around so as to be at home a week from next saturday, tho’ I cannot say for certain as I can get around so soon.

I will tell you my plans. My papers are making so that it is probarble I shall get them wednesday or thursday. Then it takes two days to get my pay even if I have good luck.

As ever your affectionate
