Birdie hopes they are settled into their new house in Fort Worth. She says they are all doing well. She talks about her baby and how Frank adores her. She also mentions the bank being robbed. If the fire hadn't been put out they would not have known the bank was robbed. She says she is slower at sewing, but the children do take up a lot of her time. Especially Harry who has been sick all winter. She gives news on everyone and hopes they will come visit during the summer. She is sending pictures they took with a rented Kodak two weeks ago.
