Hi

Missed our plane to [Czech?] had to stay in Copenhagen overnight. Had a wonderful time with the relations they were all so kind. Will tell you when we see you. Saw Vienna but since we missed [each?] plane to Vienna had only one day there. Now seeing Rome by sight seeing bus. Beautiful country so much to see.

Love, Pauline & Elroy

Where’s my letter please? [1911, Pa.]

Is this correspondence the equivalent of a girl not answering your calls, even though she gave you her number at that bar last night? Is the sender hostile or being facetious? Perhaps both?

Don’t think you ever intended writing to me. Now hurry, or I will be real mad.

Dear Myrtle,

We certainly miss you down here. I think the boss does too only he won’t acknowledge it. Ha! Ha! Well I must tell you the good news. I am auntie again but this time it’s a little niece & I am so glad. Papa was up to Cleveland Sunday & he said it was as sweet as it can be & they are both doing nicely. I can hardly wait until I can go up there.

With love,

Elsie
