The sender wrote, “Dear Sis: Your letter received today. Keep an eye on that job. I will come at once if there is any chance. If there was only two jobs why say I missed any thing. I wouldn’t have seen them any way. Has Alice moved yet? Calla[?] has been here all afternoon. I am going to spend all day Thurs. with her. Write again soon. Love from Bess.”
