It's getting near Hallowe'en. I am going to write another letter, befor Hallowe'en comes, because I have some things to ask you about Hallowe'en. I am getting along fine with my music lessons. In two or three more lessons I will be through of that blue book. Olive is going to primary this Saturday. I wish Louis was hear for a week. We are having lots of fun at home. Every night we get an apple an make a face on it and play it is Hallowe'en. Papa gave me five cents to get some cards for Hallowe'en. At the fifteen cents store you can get four cards for five cents. I crocheted a little bonet for my doll, out of that blue silkene.
At school on Friday we had a History, and spelling test. We just had ten words on spelling and I had them all right. Don't stay in Magrath during Louises birthday. When you come home bring Aunt Mary , for Christmas. Tell her I might write her a letter if I think of it. I will tell you some more in my next letter. Good-bye. kisses for Louis, and Mamma, And Aunt Mary.
For Louis XXXXXXX

Say Hello to Aunt Mary and Louis, and the Miller kids for me. Good-bye Mamma
