Myrle just click on the letter it will enlarge. Then click on the enlarged one and it will get a little larger. It can be read there are just a few words that I can't read. When he has time I will ask my husband to read it for me. I will type the full copy and add it to this post.

I will try to get these to your blog in a few days.
