CAMPBELL COUSINS CORRESPONDENCE

October 7, 1923.
is a beautiful October day.
We reached home from Mansfield [The Cousins Dinner that year was at the home of Llewellyn & Mabel Shipman Shaw-wbt], September 26th, all safe, after a most enjoyable day. There were fourteen own Cousins present with five absent. We miss the absent ones more and more each year. The years seem shorter as they pass.
These times of greeting "with some of us" will soon be over, so let us attend all of these Re‑unions and write these Campbell Cousins Correspondence letters and get all the pleasure out of life we can.
Cousin Ann VanDusen is improving slowly and hopes to be able to walk out before long.
We have had but very little rain here this summer,‑ a good many wells are dry and others very low, but there is no sickness at present, and we are hoping for a good three days' rain before the winter.
I do not think of anything more of interest so will close hoping the Cousins all keep well and happy.
With love to all,
