Dearest Friend Mabel.
Roxie – Say kid you can look for me over Sat Eve But if you realy would rather come over to the Dance kid for god’s sake come and I’ll probably meet you on the way as I’llcome over with the Meyers boys and I will probably meet you on the way. Roxie sure has been peeved at me. She just asked me if you were coming over and I said no n she asked why and I told her that I didn’t know and she said is it because Jim is going to take the car and I said no. Oh I guess she’ll come to her milk if we let them go.
NOTE: My grandparents love letters. "kid" in it's time was affectionate. :-)
