Best Birthday Wishes

Dear Sister, Are you coming home thanksgiving. I will answer your letter soon. I am busy cleaning house now. We butchered yesterday. We got our door yard all cleaned. Best wishes on your birthday. From your sister Anna. It's interesting to think about butchering as just another chore like cleaning the house. A door yard is the yard in front of the door of a house. Anna and Katie corresponded quite a bit.
