Box 162, Elko
Miss Allene Kelley,
Just an excuse of a letter to my girlie to let her know I've not forgotten her today.
Will be in "Goldamya" in a few minutes.
From Elko I expressed a package of sweets, dear, You should get 'em about the time this letter reaches you. Enclosed a couple of pictures but saved the best one for this. It's a lovely likeness, don't you think?
Will try and pen you a few more lines tonight dear but I'm pretty near all in.
Enroute. Feby 17, 1916
