R. F. D.,
Lyndonville, N. Y.,
April 9, 1925.
Well, I shall write a few lines. Have just got settled and things are going fine so far, and I hope they will continue for the season. I work on a farm of about eighty-five acres with about twenty acres of fruit, which consists of apples, peaches, pears, prunes and cherries. We have just been spraying the trees for the first time in the season. Last year we had a lot of fruit on this place, but most of the folks in this country think there will not be so much this year. I have been working on a farm here all winter.
I have just been home for a couple of weeks, the first time since my Father's sudden death in September. While I was out there this spring we made a little maple syrup and a little sugar. I guess they were all glad to see me out in that country.
The land in this part of the country is almost all level ground. The soil is mostly sand. We have not done any farm work yet as a little snow flurry we had the other day made the ground too wet to work.
Hoping you all enjoy this letter, I am,
