Old Mission Mich. May 4th 1931
My dear Miss. Taft:
Just read your telegram we had all ready called Mr. Allen back and he is at work. With this beautiful sun-shine we will soon need to put pink spray on. We were nearly beside ourselves not knowing what to do. Jos + I didn't want to add this expense to you as I can plainly see the lady now who is always making over what others throw away. It always hurts us to see things like this come up but many other wells are the same. With so little rain fall. Please don't think us foolish for asking you what to do. But as long as you are trying to sell its too bad to pay out all this hard earned money. YOu are working the same as we are and money is hard to get. Will let you know how we are coming in a day or two.
I'm some better but not feeling good. It seems such an effort for me to do my work. Every thing is dirty and my back in too sore to bend over a wash tub for hours.
Mrs. Russel is very low has liver trouble + phneumonia they never expect to see her live from one day to another.
Hope you keep well so many are sick here.
Thanks so many times for letting us hear from you we will feel more at ease knowing [over] you are willing for us to go on.
