Dear Em
I am writing these few lines to you, hoping they will find you in the pink of condition, as I suppose you would have a nice quiet day on Sunday, so had I, well in fact I didn't know what to do with me self, I shall send you a photo down before the week is over, has your sister spoken to you yet I don't know whether to come down to the circus this week or what, it just depends how I feel, I expect you will have had plenty of postcards sent to you but it makes no difference to me about them things, what I want to get at, is whether you are thinking of courting again or not, it should make no difference what people say to you, it will show them your dissatisfaction regarding the other young man, of course I understand your feelings regarding them affairs & I am willing to sympathise with you to help you in any of your troubles, you know my feelings towards you, I know you want me to wait & I will wait any length of time you propose, that is if I shall be rewarded at the end of my waiting, you will think that I am a bit impatient but it is more so every time I see you, because I love you as no other man can love you & respect you. Remaining yours with best love. A Jarvis XXXXXXX these will make up for Sat.
