El Campo, Texas
My Darling Florence;
Friday night I take my first degree in the Masons. Gee how glad it made me. So I wanted to let you know about it too.
Everything looks about the same down here in the Village as it did before. Nothing looks exciting. No noise or anything similar. Everyone of the Masons that see my here tell me about my going and seem to be very glad of it. Of course they are no more please than I, or Mama or my Darling little Florence are they. Florence you didn’t think I was going to write this soon did you. But I did tho’ I wanted to tell you of the good fortune too. I am so glad about it. I always did want to go in. I will write you again soon. I just wanted to tell you about this tho’
Lots of Love
