My Dear Mother,

I got your letter.
I am leaving in the morning with about 250 other boys from here for Fort Logan, Colorado.
I joined this morning as Clerk in the Aviation Corps, will be in Fort Logan about a month and will be sent from there to Fort Sam Houston San Antonio. Tex.
I noticed in paper a few days ago where had a ten inch snow in Mc’s Tenn. I guess youall got some of it.
You better stay in out of it as much as you can- if your chickens haven’t become to get in out of the snow and cold weather you better get some that have more sense.
I would like to be at home to see Maurys I guess they will send him out soon.
I came up here this morning I have been down about thirty miles from here for about two weeks, last Friday night it got three degrees below zero, and Saturday morning was one below. I had to be out side nearly all day though didn’t get very cold.
We get to Fort Logan Friday morn at 11 o’clock leave at seven in the morning will write to you as soon as I get there.

I am well.
Love to all
Your son

Dearest Lillie:

The convention opened with about 200 post Masters in attendance.

Gen Farley won’t be on hand because he has to fill an engagement at the fair in San Francisco.

I haven’t seen Frank Jr. yet. Tried twice to call him this afternoon but operator got no response. The only chance I will have to see him will be to go up to the Highway Dept. offices to night and see him.

The convention closes at noon tomorrow, and I suppose I will go up with Mr. Orr from Holly Springs and guess we will get to Holly Springs about 7 o’clock, so you can have Walker Crawford or someone meet me there or Stafford an about that time.

The banquet will be at 8 tonight and cost $1.50 don’t know whether I can eat that much or not unless it is caviar.

I will look for a letter in the morning.
