Waleska, GA

Mr. Perry;

Dear WA,

Your short letter received I supose it was your letter by the hand-writing, but not by the name. how many names have you. Tell me and then I will take the one I like best.


Did not know you were such an Artist. Was a sweet little bird I guess one of the thame Twins drew it did they not.


I think it real fortunate for girls to be small to their age. You know people cannot tell how old they are so well.


Glad you had such a good day. know why since you told me you got to see Abra. guess she looked as good as always.


Have seen several that was at the Singing but do not know yet whether they had any singing are not


they all must of had some one to look at.
