My dear Grandpa
Received the book you sent and was very much pleased with it and I think it will prove interesting and I thank you very much for it.
Now dear Grandpa I will tell you all the news I can think of. Lottie is stoping [sic] with us. She has not yet had the operation preformed on her throat as she has been quite poorly with a cold. But they are thinking of having it done this week.
I am not well myself I hurt my arm so badly that I could not work today.
Mr Ferlhn sent home seventeen cents towards getting him a [hard hat??], he has been saving some money for a long time to get one but he has got it at last and he has delighted with it.
We are all well except myself and I hope this will find you and Grandma enjoying good health. We received a notice the other day that Uncle [Lars??] Puckridge of Woodstock was dead.
Alice a very poorly.
We had a [berating??] at our Sunday school last night but I was not there I could not get away from the shop in time.
Now dear Granpa I will close with kindest love to you.
I remain your affectionate grandson William A Baker
