Florence [s.n.] to Katherine Fletcher Dear Kate,
Carrie had to go and tell, you that I directed the envolope. She has a "stiff" neck and when she moves she moves all over. She and I are coming up there sometime, there wont be much left of you, when she moves she moves all over. She and I are coming up there sometime, there wont be much left of you, when we go home. We have visitors, this, afternoon, (two young gentlemen). Myrtie is "mashed" on them -allready.
