July 15th 1891, Dear Mother I have a chance to send to the office this evening, will write this card in haste, just in the midst of harvest. James is helping all well. I hope you are better. Hope the Dr. did you good. Had a good shower of rain last night lots of weeds in our wheat and oats corn doing well, have a good garden, have plenty of potatoes pear and beets and some beans and cucumbers to use. I am making currant jelly, have some little children bys and all take good care of yourselves Yours J. S. Perkins Mrs. Alfred Steinberger Urbana Ohio Champaign Co.
