Dear Miss Snoddy,

I am sending you a Waiver to sign for our seed loan. I think we will get by on less than $100 00 If we could of got the Hog check we could of gotten along with out it. no rain here yet, altho the wheat does not show up so much it is coming fine & ground seems to have considerable moisture we have had three days of awful dust. last nite a fierce looking storm & looked as if enough rain would fall to drown us out, but same old story for Smith Co. we have sold the rest of the feed 6 00 but the man could not pay it till he got his resettlement check it may be a month but will send it as soon as we get it. no doubt you are extra busy with your

school work it always seems like spring was harder. My you just cannot have any idea how many oats have been sown. they make wonderful feed & yeild more to acre than wheat, but don't bring as much per bu. altho' seed oats were 50? here, we had ours brought in from Nebr 31?, seed corn is 2 00 bu. I was going to tell you I expect you wonder why we are getting the seed & feed loan thru' gov, it is onely 5 per c. & the bank is 10 per & if failure should come it was from 3 to 5 yrs. at least that is what they say when they lecture on it. I surely am glad Spring is here it had been the hardest winter we have seen but Mr Heim has worked & kept us going with out borrowing money to live on that relief gives me the creeps here an honest man does not get no help just them who never has helped themselves. I am planing to set my incubators the first of month 750 eggs so you see I'll be busy this sumer it will not be long till we expect to see you, send the paper back by return mail.
Best Wishes
Mr & mrs Heim
