Dear Sister,

I received Nancy’s[1] Postal today. As I have not received a telegram I assume that Mother[2] is much better for I believe you would send for me if you thought it was necessary and wouldnt without you did. I have been intending to write to her for sometime but have been pretty buisy and thought I would wait until Christmas. I hope I havent waited to long. Please drop me a line with regard to her health and remember me in love to her.

Family all well

Your brother

H. Crawford

[1] Sarah’s daughter, Nancy (Keith) Brown
