My Harvah rit me week fo'

las',

Dat is, dat's w'en I

got it

;

He sed, he

hardly had de time
'Tween shot an' shell to

jot it;

An' dat he had a rail bad cole,
But it wuz gettin' bettah.
Shucks ! I disremembah ha'f he rit,
So I'll

jes' read his lettah.

"Deah Darlin' Mine : I think ob

you

Wile heah in

"

dar it's blotted out.
But dat it twuz sumphin' rail sweet
An' lubin', dar's no doubt.

Den takin'

up whar blottin'

stop :

"I thanks you fo' de

candy,
De sweatah an' de backah, too,
Dey sho wuz fine an'

dandy.

"I

'spect to see

you, Deah, fo'

long,

De Capin sed "

ain't dat a doun right sin,

Jes et de inderestin'

part,

Dat blottin' starts

ergin ?

Aldough I

frets, I obahlooks
Caze jes' ez lak ez not,
Dem bullits whizzin'

right an' lef

Maik enybody blot.
