so  She also the girls
wer anxious about you
saying they could never
hear from you and they
worried a good deal about
you from the fact you
had ben arround them

so much and had ben
writing to them promptly
they seam to think that
you are in trouble; F

posibly she has ben teling
them a lot of Rot.
  I think the girls would
be much beter satisfyed if
you would wright them
more regular say every
