Lambeth are coming and Mr. Singleton and cousin Jimmie are coming. Don't you think I ought to be anticipating a jolly time?

I am looking for a Miss Little from up about Ladonia tomorrow night. If you was here, I know you could find you a sweetheart, for I think she is a girl worth having. Brother Willie's girl, Wartie Johnson, is living about three miles from where brother Fletcher is clerking. Has moved back from West.

Johnie, I will have to close, as I have got to write that ballad for you. Hope you will excuse haste. Write soon and often. With much love to you, I am ever the same friend.

Emma Davis
