Now Myrtle girl as to us being cousins I think that should have a good deal to do with it. I wish we were not any kin at all, but you know we are not very close it's pretty distant and it isn't enough to count very much. As for myself I wouldn't let it bother me or change my mind, but you know your own mind or at least you are old enough to know. If you love me why should we sacrifice our happiness just because we are distant cousins. Myrtle do what you think is best. Study yourself well and then act accordingly. Be sure you know your mind dear for if you don't care this will be the end. We will just simply be cousins and I don't [know?] when I will see you Myrtle maybe never. You know May is a long way off.

With lots of love,

Henry
