This is a letter written by Robert’s older brother, Harry (born on Aug 7, 1913).
In this letter Harry replies to his mother’s letter about the hospital she’s in, a delivery, and errands.

Darril M. got some dried abalone at china town and gave me some of it but I didn’t like it. I brought some home to Bob but he thought it was awful.
We got your letters this morning and we were sure glad to hear from you. I would like to get ice cream every day but I don’t know about having someone wake me up at five thirty.
It must be a funny hospitle without any ether smell.
Mr. Lambert was driving his truck to-day but he had another man to
ul unload for him.
I think they are out of quarantine now.
I ran a lot of errands for Mr. Robbinson.
I took Mrs. Allen her pay check and gave the janitor his.
I hope that you were able to come home again.
