Dear Aunt Jennie,
It has been a long, long time since I have written to you, but you know " procrastination
is the thief of time." How is everybody in Morganton? I suppose you know that the lady that
boards us (Mrs. Harrall) was married last week and day after to-morrow we will move to Mrs.
Campbell's who lives in the "Kyle" house next to the Episcopal Church. I saw Mr. Ike Avery
here during the Sunday School Convention. Everybody is playing base-ball here now. We have
had a great many fires here in the past two weeks. I saw Alexander Taylor this afternoon. He
is staying at Mrs. Ben Huskes' I am getting along very well at school. We have been having
examinations, you know we have them once a month in everything. A great many people are going
from here to Charleston to the Exposition. Give my love to Gordon, Alex, Wilson and Cousin
Frank and the girls. Lovingly, Donald.
