Left Fort William supper time last night and are on our way to Buffalo.
Will be at the Soo about supper time tonight.
Well, we certainly had fine weather so far, as long as it stays like this its grand!
Well dear, we will be in Buffalo Sunday morning if everything goes all right, so be ready to come Tuesday morning on that same train you came on when we were married.
That leaves Cleveland at 8 a.m. Don’t come unless I wire you. Now you can call up the Depot and find out for sure if that same train leaves at the same time or not. Now if it’s the same time, 8 a.m. why I’ll meet you at the Depot at 2:55 P.M. Buffalo time. Tuesday afternoon. Now if they changed time why wire me and let me know when you are comming [coming], and if you don’t come wire me also. Now if you don’t leave Cleveland at 8 am wire me at
c/o John Gehrn
38-40 Elk. St. Market
Now if you don’t wire me I’ll be at the Deapot [Depot] Tuesday afternoon to meet you. But don’t come unless I wire you first.
Well dearie I think you will have to bring your grip you will have to have more clothes then (than) you had at Lorain. For we may be in Buffalo mabe [maybe] two days or so.
Now you understand everything don’t you?
Well dear, I will have to close hoping I will see you soon. With Love and kisses and best to Lalla [Laura] and Mar. [Margery]
P.S. Say write at once to Buffalo to the address I gave you and put on the name of the boat also, let me know what you think about it.
By By [Bye Bye]
Well dear we just passed the Soo, went through the Canadian Locks and received your letter, and believe me I [was] certainly tickeled [tickled] to hear from you. Was going to mail this at the Soo but I changed my mind, you will get it just as quick if I mail it at Detroit.
You see it would go way around by Canada, and it would take two days before you would get it.
I told you to write to Buffalo but you needent [needn’t] mind. We will be in Buffalo when you get this letter.
So I will ask the old man if I can have you come down to Buffalo.
You said Laura left Buffalo Wednesday P.M., what train did she take? There is a train at 3 P.M. and one at 8 a.m. and another at 4 P.M. I would prefer either the one at eight a.m. or the one at three P.M. The latter gets you in Buffalo at 8:35 P.M. Buffalo time.
Well I will wire you as soon as we get to Buffalo and the first chance I get and will tell you on what train to come, so I can meet you. Gee I’m sorry your [you’re] so lonesome, well dear I will try and have you stay with me also while we are laying up.
So I know you won’t be lonesome then.
Well dear, we certainly had some Thanksgiving dinner. Will tell you all we had when I see you. Gee I got an idea the Stanton will lay up in S. Chicago. I wonder if Laura will go up there with him. Well we should worry, you can come and stay with me till I get through. My job will be good till New Years any way I think. Have you heard from your Mamma lately, is she home now?
Well I expect a letter from the kids, I told them to answer right away, for we would only
pass Detroit once more. I’m anxious to hear from them also.
We might go to Fairport with this load of grain, but I don’t think so. Well its only 29 miles from Cleveland then.
Well the weather is just grand so far and I think we will have a good run all the way down. We worked all afternoon, scrubbed up the dining room. Well dear, I think this will hold you till I see you.
Lots of love and kisses and a big hug till I see you. By By (Bye Bye).
