Nagai-san, Saito-san, and Furuta-san, and all
the rest of us too are well and working with pleasure and at our best.
Cotton is half planted. We had severe frost again several days ago,
but no material damage can be seen except about a ton of cabbage is bad

H. Kishi family is practically all down again
