June 21, 1903

From: (Mrs.) C A Burr, 27 Glen St., South Natick
To: Frank Gleasure, 82 West Canton St., Boston, Mass

My dear Frank:

I was glad to receive your nice letter and that you got the position as fireman that you wished.  I am sure it must have been very hard for you at first but there will be a good chance for you to become engineer after a while.

I wish you success in all your undertakings.  Am glad also that Joe is ambitious and wants to better himself.  As to the US Customs, I know nothing about the requirements for examination, but I will write to father and perhaps he can send you a list.  Shields is through his examinations at "Lich" and Houston will return next week from Cornell University.  I hope you will come out some day to see them when you have a day off.  Houston I expect will get work in an architect's office and Shields is in an automobile repair shop for the summer.

Neil and Miss Burr are quite well and wish to be remembered to you.


Mrs. C A Burr
