Received your letter about three days ago & haven't had the chance to answer untill now. It's getting pretty cold around here now & they tell me that Pennsylvania & Jersey weather is the coldest there is on the coast. I hope that we don't have to make that move to the South because I hate that damn place, one winter down there is enough I'd rather stay up here & freeze. I received all letters and newspapers up to date so far. How is Martha after her collapse? If you ask me, I think there is something shady about that one she was with. We had a big fire in the Pennsylvania Railroad station here last night & from what I hear the place is a wreck & it's a big place like the South Station. They have been having quite a few train wrecks & now this fire, it looks to me like somebody's dirty work. How is Jimmy doing at the engine house & how did he make out with the navy? he said something about signing up. I can't seem to think of anymore news to write up so till I hear from you again, I'll close.
