Dear Cousin:

I expect you have begun to think I have kept my promise well and have forgotten all about it, but I thought I would wait a little while after Edna wrote.

We went to Franklin this morning and when we came home, we received a card from Uncle Jim Sellers saying Aunt Minnie had Pneumonia. I dont know whether she is in bed or not but we want to go down tomorrow and see how she is. Julia wrote saying she had a chill Saturday night but would not have a doctor, but I guess they have had him since. We are all well but colds and they seem to be very near friends.

On last Sunday Nov 19, our Semi-Annual Sunday School Convention was held at Springboro. It was just fine in the afternoon only one thing, but the evening was not so good. This was the first time the Universalist Church ever was included in any thing of the kind and if I were them I never would want to be again. In the afternoon one of the Uninversalist girls gave a reading and I think probably if it had been at some school picnic or some other great jubilee of some sort it might have been very appropriate, or it treated on some great horse race. In the evening the Universalist minister was to give an address of 15 minutes in length and he talked for over half an hour and I dont know how much longer when they called him down. I think that was "great," for the first time dont you?

We were invited to a dinner Sunday by one of our girl friends. There were twelve couples invited and I suppose if we had been there we would have had a very nice time, but as it was the same day as the convention I did not feel like missing Sunday School and the Convention both to go there. Our minister was to give an address in the afternoon of half an hour and I was anxious to hear it for I knew it would be something fine and it surely was.

I received a letter from Grace Saturday evening and she was telling me what a fine time you all had at your social.
