Amanuensis Monday - 1951 Letter from Alfred Bake

This is another letter that was among the second batch of grandma Hazel's stuff. It is from Alfred Bake who is her first cousin once removed. 

                                Jerome, Idaho
                                    Jan. 14, 1951

Dear Cousin and Family,
   We were glad to hear from
you again.  We have moved
to Nevada since last writing to
you.  We haven't found any more
genealogy on our side as yet.
  We received the letter and the 
picture. It is my father alright.
Thank you.
   We still hope to get some
genealogy on our family.  We
will really appreciate any you
can send us.
   We are living here in Rowland
with my brother.  We have had
some lovely weather this year.
  We have had three small 
snowfalls but there is only a 
little left in spots now.  It is
really ice and warm today.  We
really are enjoying it.
   We have also had a new
son since writing to you last.
He was born on the 12th of Oct.
& weighed 6# 6 1/2 oz. now he weighs
15# 14 1/2 oz. He is really a dandy
   Well there isn't much news
so will close.
                        Write soon
                                Cousin Alfred Bake
                                               & Family
