My Dear Mariel1;

Would you care to see a very tired and homesick maiden blow in about next Tuesday the 29th? It will be better for me to stop in Lincoln3 on my way home4 as after I get home once I wont want to leave one hour before I just have to.

O I have so much to tell you! a whole life-time of things it seems to me!

Yours as Ever Willa

Am going to stop at the Canfield's5 in Columbus6 several days, will drop you a line from there.

Miss Mariel Gere1 D & 9th Str Lincoln3 Nebraska. PITTSBURGH. PA STA2 JUNE 22 97 1130AM June 21 1897
