My dearest Calvin,
We hope you are quite well, but it seems a long time since we heard from you and I hope you are only busy. I hope you got the neck tie I posted you a week ago. Tom has just come in from hearing election reports. Tremendous day of snow yesterday, but beautiful day to-day. Am enclosing card and letter from Ruby, think she is doing very well. We are still struggling with R.'s letters of thanks, had a fresh list to-day. Mrs. Irving is now able to eat a poached egg with relish and the doctor has ceased to call.
We had Miss Grantham in for tea on Thursday (as she had been so kind to Ruby at Calgary & sending her things) and Blanche and Maddie McKay. Had a letter from Dr. Macdonald, the late Deputy Speaker at Ottawa, now Postmaster at London inquiring for R. H. & I took the cars to Locke St. & then walked away up Garth to see the new houses, but would not like to live out there at all, not a tree and so lonely. Well, Cal dear, there is really nothing to tell, unless that Mrs. Mullin's house so far has cost $6000 (bills not all in) besides the land $1500.
Have you time to call on Mrs. McArthur or would you like me to write. I can easily do so. Thought I'd better post you Harvey G.'s book. With love from all and much love from your mother.
