back again with my husband in fact he would not leave me and Cecil behind, Billy says he wishes you the best of luck and he has quite recovered from his recent sickness only his back troubles him at times I guess he will feel it for a long time to come. The weather here is bitterly cold and one cant get coals I have been without for two weeks but got a cwt Today 2/4 per cwt and rubbish at that we are only allowed cwt per week. Well Dear Friend we both hope your wife and children are well I guess they get quite big now. You might tell Johnny Butts that I had that tobacco sent on to Billy as they wanted me to pay 15/ duty on it if a parcel is sent to me for my husband never put that there is tobacco inside or else there is a heavy duty on it. So trusting these few lines will find you in the best of health

We Remain your Sincere Friends Florri & Will Nowokowsky
