Message reads: "My Dear Rena: Wish I could get some nice cards to send you but I can't find a good one up here. Am going to send you a Thanksgiving card this week but it won't be a pretty one. We are all piled up with snow here - did you get much down there? Don't I hate to see the winter coming on. I am just like you now dear. The sight of snow makes me homesick. I hope we will have some fine weather now so you can come up when you get ready dear. How is your new cast dear and is your back getting any better? I hope so for you have suffered enough with it. Lots of love, Harry."
