Sat. night June 27


I am slightly if not somewhat more than peevish. I offered to excuse the first card, but the second is unpardonable. This makes three letters that I have written and I’m sure that if I can find the time to write, you must be able to. You told me that if you received any cards from me that you would be awfully mad and would not answer.
Perhaps I’ll get to tell you the same.

I am awfully tired and I believe that if I have to repeat today’s work Monday, you will have to find someone to write to, while Mr. Ed C. Smith takes care of me. I hope however that his services will not be necessary. You’ll have to excuse me now as I have to do a thousand and one things.

Your Verne

Sweetheart please don’t send send another one of those ____ ____ ____ cards. If you do I’ll be real mad. Think of me a “whole lot.”

Postmark: June 29, 1914
From: 3730 Travis Ave., Dallas
To: Sweetwater, TX  c/o N.M. Rogers.
Verne is 20. Dorothy is 19.

Editor’s note: Preston G. is reading through and occasionally transcribing several letters from Verne Garrison sent to Dorothy Logan during their courtship. My hope is that transcriptions of most or all of these letters will be posted here as time permits. Enjoy! – Cyndi W.
