Harvest at Plainville, Kans. 1914 July 27 - 1914 Dear wifey I received your dear letters yesterday. Art got back and got a new feeder. Will run it on today. He was in Lawrence Friday night. Martin has been working every since we have been laying off. Well everybody is feeling fine. The nights are cool out here. We sleep under a comfort every night and sometimes under two. Well breakfast is just about ready. With love, Ed. Mrs. Edw. Schrader 520 Miss St Lawrence Kansas
