"Dearest mother, I will send you one of my beautiful 
pictures. When I got them, I was laying on the bed
and I didn't do a thing but cry when I looked
at them. They looked so bad, but mother I have
fallen (?) off six lbs since I had those
made. I fell off six lbs from last
Sunday (?) week til the next Saturday afternoon.
I weight 130 now. I went up to see the Dr. yesterday afternoon
and I had two degrees of fever. He seems like he
can't understand what causes me to have that
fever. But I have a high fever at night
and sweat til you could ring water out of
my clothes. But I felt some better this morning.
I wish I was up there with you a while.
But I don't no when that will be (?). But god be willing (?)
"..." till we meet again. Hattie. Love to all."
