Dear Hoffman family, I am about to
fly north for it is getting time for
hot weather here. We have had
beautiful weather so far. No rain
for some time and very dry. But I
enjoy every day and go about
the country with friends who have

strange flowering vines and trees and
grounds laid out with fountains
and gushing wells. Love to the H. E. L

Dear Elizabeth,
Arrived here
Sat A.M. & had no trouble at all.
My cousins met us & we recognized
one another immediately. We met a
nice gentleman on the boat train who helped
Ed carry the luggage & he was going same
place as us & we enjoyed meeting him.
He was a big help to us.

The boat trip was very nice & we did not
get sick. My cousin Harry is a very
nice person. We like him so very
much. His wife is a wonderful person
too. He has driven us every day from
10 A.M. till nite showing us the towns
& country. Hope you are keeping well
& the boys are fine. Love The H's
