Dear Homer;
I received your strange letter an hour or so ago about 5:45 o’clock. I was glad to hear from you, but very sorry to read that letter Homer.

You must think me terribly hard hearted and cruel to think that I would tell or insinuate to her that she was not wanted with us. I should not expect anyone to do that for me, as I’ve often told you.

You must see Homer that we can’t agree or understand one another, and so I shall say Good-by I am sorry Homer it is so, but it is.

I think I am doing my duty to my mother, as I ever hope to do.

  1. Wow! Just like texting/messaging today with the younger people or even with us… say something and can be taken a different way of understanding or direction – from what the writer had thought/written.. but the receiver.. vs seeing &talking with a person or via a phone call directly..
