       Dear Ones and All
       Miss you all. Have been busy today. Coun Maud preserved her crab apples
       and she gave me some, so I made 6 bottles of jelly and a qt. of jam.
       She also gave me Burbank plums and we filled all but 2 bottles of mine
       with jelly and I guess a dozen glasses for her. I made a dozen glasses of
       for her. I made 10 quarts of jam and could make all I could put up if I had
       sugar and jars. When Wm. comes out have him bring 1 dozen quart jaers
       for I borrowed some from M. Get them at Clarence;s store. I also
       borrowed 6 cups of sugar. Hope you are getting along fine.
       Love to all. Mother”
