Wilmington, Aug 15.

Dear Gladys

Grandpa got back allright. Aunty went to Lowell yesterday and there was a sale. She bought 5 dresses for you and one for your mother. One may stay until next _____. John got off to day and went berrying with Pa. They got quite a lot of berries. They are all in to night.

With Love to all

Ed Note: Well at that time, Lowell was the hot spot for all sorts of consumer goods such as clothing and shoes.

According to Larz Neilson: "Mention of berrying - since it was dated 8/15, that couldn't be cranberrying. They're harvested late in the fall. This would refer to blueberries, virtually everywhere in Wilmington, picked in August."
