Miss Pinkie E. Jacobs, East New Market (post marked July 14, East New Market)

Dear Pink,

We were so glad to hear from you and the Denton friends.  Shall expect you next week.  Will meet you and day, but Thursday.  That day the Bishop will be here and stop with us.  So we could not meet you and him.  Wednesday the town folks are to have picnic at Mr. Shermans'.  I believe your paper and me are on the committee.  I may go.  If you choose, you can come on that day or any day if it suits you, but the one named.  I see from the Sun, brothers name has been sent to the Senate for confirmation.  I had a letter this week.  Send his love to all the family.  Can't you bring some of the folks home with you?  The camp commences the 28th of this month.  I send you hilys letter.  I had one from Auntie.  I have been doing lots of sewing.  All well in Easton.  Jeannie is having a grand time.  Does not say a word about coming home.  Papa joins me in love to all the family.  My love to the friends.  Kiss Ormand for me.  Hope Clara is well.  We were mistaken about cousin Annie and Mr. H. being at Cape May.  There were from Baltimore.  We saw it in the Sun, but on closer inspection we saw who it was.  I surely want to see my youngest. 

Your loving mother,
E.V. Jacobs
