Dear Aunt “Sarah”,

Am sorry to learn from “Jim”[2] of your feeling so much worse. I trust you will forgive our long silence and in the future we will at least keep you supplied with ointment even though we may fail to write. Jessie[3] will send you a letter in a day or so. Until then accept our best wishes and love to all.

Your Neph”

Use both ointments Freely, more will follow in a day or so —  Chas.
