Letter from Katie Frierson Force to Manning Force
My Dear Brother -
I received your letter yesterday telling me of the Express Package at the office for me for which I am very much obliged to you and Frances for it will be a great for me and the children to look at. I am going to send up to Tuscaloosa for teh package tomorrow. I wrote to you last July the next day after I recieved your letter with the 10 dollars for Manning but never getting an answer I supposed that you were out of the city. I hope this letter will find you andFrances enjoying a Merry Christmas. It has been a very quiet one down here so far everything seems to pass off like Sunday. I am a little unsettled about my next years arrangements but it won't be many days before I will know what I am going to do. The children enjoyed Santa Claus very much.
Hoping to hear from you soon and with much love to yourself and Frances I remain your
