Dearest Mother
I know you won't be expecting to hear from me so soon but I have something to tell you.
Nellie and I have decided to get married this Saturday, October 8. She said that since she is on her vacation we might as well get married. She said she is feeling will enough now. We didn't know it was going to be so soon but decided that there wasn't any use in putting it off any longer. We aren't going to have a large wedding. Another couple and we are going to go to Atchison, Kans. Saturday afternoon and get married. We can't afford any large wedding and have decided that being married by a preacher would be sufficient.
Mother if you want to come up we would be very glad to have you. If you could let me know by telegram before Saturday I could make arrangements at Doman's for you. As for myself I'm afraid that I won't have much time to spend with you as were are planning on being married at 2:30 P.M. and afterwords go somewhere by ourselves over the week end. I have to work Saturday morning and will be rushing around getting ready until 2:00 P.M. I would be very glad to have you but I wanted to explain that I wouldn't have much time to spend with you. Please let me know if you will come. Honestly Mother I'm really happy and awfully thrilled. Really I don't believe I'm responsible for some of the odd things I do. I never felt quite like this in my life.
Well, dear, you will soon have a daughter and I know that you will love her. I know both of you will and I know that you'll both like each other.
I guess I'd better sign off, hoping that you will let me know before Saturday if you are coming up.
I am and always will be,
Your loving son,
Harold
