I just got home6 last night from
Beatrice7 where I have bee
having more fun8 than I could
tell you of in a week. I find this country looking like a garden, green and
beautiful beyond words with corn fields like forests every where. I want you
to see it right now while it looks so pretty and is so cool and nice. Can
you come this coming Saturday or the first of next week? please let me know
at once and by all means come as soon as you
come can. We have'nt a lake Osakis9 down here
but you are used to camp life and you both know how to rough it. The
little kids10 talk of
your coming night and day and it you dont come pretty soon they will fade and pine away of anticipation.
Tell your mamma11 that mamma12 and I will take awfully good care of
you, and the boys13 are both
at home and at your service. Roscoe14
heartily seconds my invitation.
Awaiting your reply and your arrival;Faithfully Willa.
Give my love to Mariel17 when you write. What is her address?Miss Ellen Gere3 D & 9th Str Lincoln4 Neb. RED CLOUD2 30 1895 8 PM Invitation to Red Cloud
