Dear Sister & family

 

     How are you?  I am fine and dandy.  Am sending you this card for a souvenir.  Wrote the folks a little yesterday so you can read it and it will do for all.

    Iím sending Elsie (sister) a card to and Mama & Cecil (future wife).  Will try and bring you something when I come back.

Your brother Roy

Bye Bye
