Dear Brother-Sister.

In your inquiry about time. Time means nothing to me. I have been on the retired list for 2 years. Therefore it will be our pleasure to have you come at your convenience. Now as for transportation you will find it a very interesting trip by train and no doubt less fatiguing than by bus. Either the UP or Great Northern. Just let us know when you will arrive here. Unless time is of prime importance you will not have much chance to view the scenary coming by plant. At any rate will leave that up to you. It will be great to see all of you and we are looking forward to your being with us soon.

Give my regards to everyone. We have not heard from Martin and Florence for over two years.

With lots of love, best wishes to all of you from both of us.

Your brother Ernest

Dear Brother & Sister,

To start with I will say Amen, in looking over Marie’s letter find there is not much else to say. One thing I can add as news, the mailman just brought a letter from Albert & Irene. informing us that you had still been lucky with the weather man. Also got a Christmas card from Paul & Carrol. You know a funny thing, we forgot this last name well as I said before Marie pretty much covered the news so will just make a deal with you and Christine. Drive out here next summer while the weather is nice. Then I will drive back rather ride back. In that way you will really see the country. I can dream can’t I.

With love,

Your brother, Ernest
