My Dearest Maudy,
I got your letter yesterday and was sure glad to hear from you. I am back again in old Brooklyn. It is lots better than the South Dakota. Say, I may beat this letter there but if I don’t, don’t forget I am coming. How many dances are we going to have? Sylvan is here and we are having a very good time.
Say, Maude, I can’t think of very much to write so I will close for this time.
From your loving Clark
So at this point, Sylvan’s sent her a ring. Clark keeps talking about it. What sort of notes to Sylvan and Clark share? I wonder.
