Mrs. John L. Pratt Box 118 Fredericksburg, Virginia
Dear Mrs. Pratt,
Thank you for your kind letter and check on account.
I was most sorry to hear that you were ill, and I am glad to know that you are up and around again. Please do take care of yourself. Remember, we need your help for Paul's wedding.
It is remarkable how time flies! He is growing every day and you will find that he is not the little baby you have seen. Of course, we still think he's very sweet and lovable.
We are on the beach and would enjoy it very much except that there's a plague of mosquitoes which is not very pleasant, but we hope that they'll disappear soon.
With kindest regards and love from the family,
Sincerely, Alexander S. Schaffer [signature]
