Full Text: Dearest Mother & Daddy,

Just a note to-night to let you all know not to write to me until you hear from me again. I’m going to move, & I’ll let you know my new address as soon as I get there.

I had “Rebel” operated on this afternoon. I had her “spaded”. She’s lying over in one corner, & every now & then she lets out a whimper. But she’s pretty well out from the “dope” & ether they gave her.

I guess this is all for now. I have to take care of my “baby”. Will write as soon as I can.

Lots of love, Annie Edith
