Dear Irene1:

I will reach Chicago3 at nine oclock on Thursday morning of this week, and go out over the Grand Trunk for Toronto, Canada4, at four oclock the same afternoon. If you can meet me I will wait in the Burlington Station near the restaurant until you arrive, so that you won't have to hurry down town. I expect I will be rather tired and had better put in the few hours I will have there as quietly as I can.

Faithfully yours Willa
Mrs. Charles William Weis[missing] 1 824 Lafayette Pa[missing] Chicago3 Ill[missing] RED CLOUD NEBR.2 14 OCT 1918 730 P
