I wrote to you the other day and I don’t think that that letter has started on it’s way yet as I sent it over to the tsetse fly ranger and thought that he would send out his post last week but he is going out himself Tuesday and so will take it then so I decided to get another one off for him to take, too. Really, though, I do not know of much to write about.
As to the diet, I didn’t get to 140 until this week-end so now I must keep on and get down to 135 and then I shall see. Wyn is home now and it isn’t as easy for me to keep away from food but then I can if I make up my mind to do so.
I am going to write all of my brothers and sisters in one letter and let them pass it around. What do you think of that? Really I just do not have the time to write to each individually, much as I would like to. Do you think that it will work? Anyway I shall try it. I am sending out my circular this week, too, but I am not writing anything on them as it makes them cost so much more. That is another thing; it is so expensive for me to write so many air-mails and yet I hate to write to them by surface.
They are coming here now for coffee so I must get it served. Then we are going to our gardens to look around and then for a little walk and then it will be dark and thus ends Sunday afternoon. Of course I have been resting for a long time and I should have been at this job as I have several to write. Next week our special meetings begin and Blairs will be here for over Sunday with some of their Christians. I don’t know if Marguerite will be along or not. Then later in the week Everswicks will be here so it will be a full week.
How is everything coming along? Is it still cool and wet? We are still having it cool in the nights and this is unusual for this time of the year as it does not stay like this so long generally. I had a letter from Aunt Net the other day. I guess I must have sent a circular to her the last time.
I saw the car in that paper and it certainly looks snappy. It must be a pleasure to cruise around in it. How are the chickens? Do you get many eggs? Have the boys sold their calves?
Well I believe that I shall stop for now and maybe tomorrow I can dash off a few lines. I really find it hard to write as there seems to be nothing to write about.
Well, it is time for me to go to the village and I never did get more added to this. It is hardly worth a shilling but anyway, I’ll send it. I must go. I trust that this finds you all well.
