Hello Fern Raymond and children

Well I am OK but lazy have been just putting you off from day to day, making some good promises that I'd Write tomorrow and of course I break most of my good intentions reguraly. I dont really think I intend too but it so happens that I do. as I tell my Sisters I am just another Williams boy and dodge a fountain pen pretty often. I dont think they will bite But I just do, and I notice that most men do. I don't think women are so lazy. Well I havent been no where of interest lately. I go to town (Honolulu) about once a week to get my "Groceries" Scoch, Hunter Grand Dad, or Sunny Brook, or some good, Kind with plenty of Vitamins . you know I have got to keep healthy.

Well they tell me it has been hot in Texas. Ida Bell said 113 down there and Charley said 107 in Illinois and about 80 to 86 here, so I like this better. I am setting in my room looking out the back window and I wish you could see this sight the Banana trees are in bloom. the bloom comes out the top of the stalk and leans toward the ground and the bloom is a dark crimson red as it grows the outside pedal will roll back and expose a hand of young bananas, they are green trimed with red and yellow with a real delicate little blossom on the lower end of each banana. (the Banana is about like your little fingers in size and length but grow very fast the little Blossom are full of honey and this one is on top off the lower roof of the house. and the Honey is dripping on the roof and the honey bees are thick gathering it the bees here are very small and gentle I have never seen a humming bird here as they don't come here, their is no bird here like any in the states except the Dove and they are just the same. the Cardinal or Red bird is shaped the same only he is only red headed his body dove color say I forgot the sparrow he is the same as there. and trees are all different, they have one here that they call cauuy is a Mesquite it differs some but the leaves are the same.

Well No news so I wring off. for this time. and when you get lonesome write a letter to me and if I don't, you can

Love to all

Frank.
