My dear Roscoe1

What a relief and pleasure it was to get a letter from you! Miss Bloom4 is away and Edith5 is writing this line to you. Some days ago my brace6 went wrong and I found the inconvenience of having a doctor7 in Boston8. Today I saw a student of his, who fixed the brace for me, and now I am much more comfortable. The Boston doctor comes next Sunday. I will write you very soon. This is only to send my love, and explain my silence.

Lovingly to you both9 Willie
Mr. R. C. Cather1, First Savings Bank of Colusa, Colusa3, California. May 19 1941 10 PM
