Postcard messageNutana, August 15, 1910 Dear Sister, I suppose you are wondering why I didn't arrive Saturday. Laura and I were to drive over as soon as Ma got home Sat. morning, but when she arrived, she as sick and she [left?] Maude very sick in town, so I took the evening train back. She managed to go down to work today. I will stay all week and then go out to your place next Monday, if possible, but will write later. Lara
