Dear Sister

Your letter received, some
few days ago, glad to
hear from you, sorry to
hear that you were having
trouble with your hand,
hope it won't be serious.
I just got out of the
hospital today; was there
18 days with mumps,
came out o.k.

Sorry to hear that about the
corn being out yet in field.
It is real warm here now,
looks like farming time.
I know it will be hot here this
summer, but they say it is
cool at night. So one can sleep
good.
Well I was sorry to hear that
the children at home have the
measles. Hope they will not
be bad.
I guess I will go over to
St. Petersburg next week; I
haven't been off the Island
since I came here.
There are lots of tourists over
there from Indiana and
Illinois. Lots of them farmers.
Well, as I have several
other letters to write,
will close. I am sending
you a picture of myself;

it isn't very good
but the best one can get
over here.
Hoping this finds
you lots better.
Leaves me o.k.

As ever,
Roy
