    McDermott Dear Friend
    I hope you will excuse this way of making my wants known. I
    think Kate has told you that we wer(sic) expecting to be married
    this winter. And we would like to have your consent. I will
    try and take good care of her, iff(sic) she is a good Girl. I
    guess Kate has told your(sic) our plans as far as we know now.
    And I hope you will approve of it and give your consent.
    We have had the worst weather I ever saw for the last ten days,
    rain and snow and lots off(sic) and work is geting (sic) the
    start of the farmers. Julia often speaks of you folks, and
    wonders iff(sic) you will ever come to Polo. She thinks she
    would like to see Myrtie so much. Hoping for a favorable reply
    soon. I will close untill(sic) I see you.
    Yours truly George

    Dear Friend Your of the seventh at hand. I was very much
    pleased to hear from you. And will say in regard to your wish,
    I am not in favor of a wedding. And I liked Kate's plan very
    much, but you plan suits me just as well. And iff(sic) that is
    your wish, tell Kate I think we had better do that way iff(sic)
    it suits you. We have more snow this week and I would not be
    surprised(sic) iff (sic) there would be lots of corn stay in the
    fields all winter. You have Kate do as you wish about the

    to her soon and tell her what I think of the plan.
    Yours truly Geo
