About Jesse Spiceland

Letter from Granddaddy Jesse to Callie.... Shortly before their marriage

Nov. 15, 1919 317-34th St., Cairo

My Dear Callie,

Sunday afternoon finds me scribbling at about my usual time only a little earlier earlier than usual. I usually wait until after supper but came in and was just sitting around with Byron so thought I would be on time. See? Thought I would go to the Theatre tonight as there is another real good show on. All the other boys are going. Well you know dear I have to give some excuse for going and another excuse, now listen. You see today is the last Sun. until I come for you and unless I can persuade you to go occasionally I'll soon be out of luck. Ha, ha! No dearest I was (teasing) you but really I am ashamed most of writing you every time about going to shows for I am sure you are tired of it long before now.

I wonder how you spent Sunday as it has been so nice and pleasant.

Went down to see Pettit this morning (where he rooms) and we were talking of how nice it would be to go out and gather nuts today. I guess we could have went if we hadn't been so lazy.

I'm so sorry to know you were not feeling so well when you received my letter. (Probably) you just had a case of sure enough blues. Anyway I hope you are feeling all right by now.

Say you tell Dan I said I was getting jealous of him. But it's very nice of him bringing your mail.

Carried your ring to town last night and say I can't get it until Wed. afternoon or night rather so will have to wait until I come and bring it. Thought I could have it fixed Sat. afternoon but couldn't. Am sorry but couldn't do better. As it is about supper time will close and write some more in the morning if I get up in time. Ha ha. You know it's pretty hard to get up early Mon. morning.

Hoping to see you Friday.

I am yours as ever,
