1785 Rabbits Cheney Kans. Cheney Automobile Co. Anness, Kans. Feb. 1 1912. Rec’d your card yesterday and as I am in the writing business today, thought I would ans. your card. We are having pretty good weather. The snow is almost gone and the mud will soon be dried up. We are all well here but Grandma she has a cold and her stomach bothers her. Sorry to hear so many are sick up there. You mustn’t get down you must throw that cold away. John has been here and at Earl's has not been at home much. Am thinking of going to Norwich Sat. if the weather is nice. Aunt Hattie. Mr. John Allen Box 608 K.S.A.C Manhattan Kan.
