Nov. 28th My own Mabel
It worries me terribly when I don't hear from you under the conditions I left you under . . . Things seem very quiet here now. I don't know how I will be here, but I will be trying ... as I want to at least to send you something for Xmas. . . .
One to depend on.
Nov. 30th My dearest Mabel, wife,
I received your letter of the 26th . . . also inquired at post office for your general deliver}7 letter (but) I guess it is lost. ... I did not have much of a Thanks­giving so far as fun goes, but I was feeling good ac­count of sunshine and thank God for that. I have been going to church Sundays, but I haven't been going much in the mornings account of terrible headaches. . . . Don't pay any attention to any of those niggers. I never told her no such thing. She ask if you were here and I said no and did not give them any satisfaction. I know all niggers do is try to find out anyone's business and start gossiping. Pay no attention to them. As soon as I make some money, you will be gone and they won't know where you passed. I never told anyone you wasn't my wife. Find out the fare from N. Y. to N. O.
Much luck to you, my dear. May God bless you.
Yours, as ever.
P. S. Mrs.---------has proven to be very rotten all
the way through. She is N.G. and I don't owe her any­thing, I am satisfied of that. . , .
