 and I wish you would send me
some of those little red apples off
of that tree that stands by the
cooper shop. They have a large
Peach orchard here. but that is
all the good it does us girls
for they wont let us go near
it. I room with Beck and
like her very much indeed for
a room mate. we room on the first
floor and have a front room too
They wanted to put us way up
in the third story in a back room
where we could never see nor hear

It is a very pleasant room.^but^ not very
large . though they are all the
same size. Kara and Rome have
the one to match this in the other
