We miss our little girl5 dread–ful–ly6! Mother7 made father8 wrap the little swing up around the limb because it made her so sad. The circus was a splendid show with lots of animals. I was sick and could not go, but all the others, big and little, went and brought home great tales. We all mourned that Virginia missed it.
Give my heartiest love to Meta13 and a hug to Virginia. We are surely lonesome for that child.Lovingly Willie Mr. Roscoe Cather1 Lander3 Wyoming RED CLOUD NEBR2 22 SEP 1916 7:30P
