Addressed to Mrs. Fred W. Fett, Adair, Iowa R. 3:

July 12 - 18.

Was sure shocked to hear that Anna Damman passed away. They sure are having their share of grief and she is the first member of the Aid. [See *NOTE below] Suppose they got her a nice bouquet, but it won't do her any good or anyone else. I will try and send you that box Sunday. There will be a few wild ones and the rest tame ones and will tie the wild ones separately, don't know if they will stand the heat, but what's the dif. We are well. This is sure one lovely day. Don't need any fans though.

*NOTE: Probably refers to the St. John's Lutheran Ladies Aid organization.
