Well we are pretty near the Soo on our way down, so I must hurry and write this so I can mail it there.
Well dear how is everything, I suppose you are over your being lonesome by this time. Aren’t you? Gee that certainly was some storm, I suppose you people read all about it. There were over fifty boats wrecked and over three hundred people drowned. That certainly was awfull [awful].
Gee, you can see boats on the beach all over. Saw the Turret Chief (steel steamer) and the Str. Waldo (L.C. Waldo) yesterday on Lake Surperior (Superior) right on the beach.
And the McGean of our line is gone with the whole crew. Laura was on the McGean allready (already), thats before she was married.
I was second cook for Ed then.
Say, I got your hat all boxed up ready to send. Will send it if I get any chance at all.
Will also send you one of my collars ha ha.
Remember you said you wanted one, of my low collars.
Well dear, I don’t know yet where we are going.
But will let you know where we are when we get down.
If we go to Lorain and have a day or so then I will send for you. Well sweetheart I will close, with love and kisses and a big hug.
Best to Laura and Margery
