Dear Husband,

a lonesome old place
was over in Ok

like the looks of
the country it is
fine with love to
Rose Gray

Rose Althea Browning Gray was writing from Gravette, Arkansas (Benton County in Northwest Arkansas, about 10 miles from the Oklahoma border) to her husband Alex Gray at home in Craig, Missouri. She is about to turn 58 years old. She was likely visiting her cousin Mary Tolby McNiel.
