<Letter Water Damanged on both sides>

Dearest Louie,

I doubt if this letter reaches you in time for your birthday, but I want you to konw that I have been thinking of it for the past couple of days and didn't forget.  I haven't had time to get out of here to buy you a present, so I am enclosing a check which I probably won't have a chance to cash.  It is a Grey Hound lines refund draft which I am endorcing over to you with which you can feel free to buy what you want most.  In these times, however, I suggest that you spend your money wisely, for the day will come when nickels
