Boy, the next time we move, I go with you when you go, or you don’t go. What a job we've had. Ken and Gord, Mont, Wid & Burnell [brothers and brothers-in-law] got all the freight off yesterday which didn't inc. the book case or radio and did include Baby Bed, kitchen table & chairs, dishes, pans, books, bedding & fruit. The cost was terrible. $34.70. I pd only $16.00 leaving $35.00 for my fare & Mont promises to pay me $15.00 before I leave. We’ll have to pay the rest of the freight at that end.
As far as I know I’m leaving here Wed. eve at 7:00 P.M. on the D & R.G. & will arrive at 4:30 P.M. Friday. I have a bit of news too. Alvin & I will not be traveling alone I don’t believe. Alan Lundgren is on his way, & will try to leave the same time I do. We will have 4 ½ hrs in Denver, but will come all the way thru on a streamliner.
Darling, I hope you’re well, and I’ll be so glad when I’m down there & we’re settled. I've been so busy the last few days I’m really tired, but today, Sun. I have rested all day. Had dinner with Mother & Dan

Went to church last night & didn't finish writing the letter. Got your special delivery this morn. As I have said I sent the table & chairs, but do not dispose of those you got until after we get there because our freight may take 3 weeks to get there.
Helen & Mont are giving me $15.00 & I have $35.00 for my fair. Hope you have enough to run on.
Can’t think of anything more to say, but I think you've done wonders. Can’t wait to get there.
I’ll leave here Wed eve that’s certain. But there is a train at 7:00 & one at 8:00 P.M. I don’t know which one Alan will want to take. I think it will be the 7:00 P.M. getting us there Fri eve at 4:30 P.M.
Laura & Alvin
P.S. Just received your letter of 13th. Don’t worry about money. I think well be ok.
