My Dearest Florence;
Last nite I spent a long time writing to you and when I was about half way through Roy Chambers came in and so I did not finish it. So I will try again. I have been so busy that I have not had any time to write. You see we leave pretty soon and the room has been full every nite. Tonite there will be three boys over, besides us three. I am going to help Jesse fix up his course and also correspond for some work in Houston. Comstock is also coming over and the chances are very good for him to go to Rice. He has been working down here and has found out that he likes Football better.
I am going to set aside Sunday for a letter to you. These boys are coming over so my time will be taken up the rest of the nite. I am surely glad Mary phoned. I do hope you do as you say and not let the time grow lonesome. You have been so good and kind to me and now you are going out to see Mary. She will be tickled to death to see you. She talked to me lots while I was home. Company is lots of comfort while in bed you know.
The boys are coming so I will say good nite till tomorrow.
With bushels of love
I think Ike is going to leave Friday instead of Sunday. Jessamine and Ruth are going to Ruth’s summer place. Sorry he will not stay over ’till Sunday.
