New Orleans December 1923 to Monroe, Louisiana
Dear old Abe,
I was overjoyed to get a letter from Uncle Billy the other day. God Bless you old boy, it will make a better man out of you both morally and physically, you do not realize what a difference it will make in you, and where you and your [?] fall out. Don’t talk too much folly their along so as to keep the boat on even keel. All the folks are glad to hear of it. We are all well except a few coughs and colds, all join me in love and good wishes to you all.
Your loving uncle
