Return Address: "Franklin, N.Y., Aug. 15"

"Dear Cousin Allie: Your letter rec'd., and I have sent the cards to the following addresses: Mrs. H. E. Reed, 316 E. Lafayette St., Mankato, Minn.; Fred E. Day and J. E. Reed, Eagle Lake, Minn.; Frank McDougal, Endeavor, Wisc.; Geo. McDougal, Packwaukee, Wis. I have enclosed one in a letter to Huldah for Lester as I did not know his address. Think he lives in South Dakota. Huldah's daughters all live near her. I told her to send a word to Sarepta's [sic] children too. I can't seem to remember the name. She left four children and I presume they are all married. Grace - John - Clarence and Laclaire (twins). We expect to be there and will bring plenty of provisions. Yours, Julia."
