Dear John: I wish you would come home Saturday as those groceries you bought of Tatman are nearly all gone and I do not want to buy anywhere else. They were all fresh and good and you ought to see the children eat. His tea is the best we ever had & with that Galvanic soap I did my washing in one hour and 15^ minutes. Be sure to buy the children candy for Christmas at Tatman's as he has the best—and oh, such nice oysters. He could mix them half water and then they would be thick. Yours, Mary. AKSWBB.
