Transcription:
Saturday 10:30 a.m./Dear Miss Breed,/We just arrived in El Paso, Texas and will have a half hour wait before pulling out of the station./We left Poston 1:20 p.m. and arrived in Phoenix 6:30 p.m. by bus. We boarded this pullman train about 9:00 p.m. and pulled out of the station about 10:30. In Phoenix we joined a group who came from Gila. We had a late supper and since the lights were dimmed went to bed./ We had a rather restless night due to the occasional jerking of the train. I feel fine but mother is a bit car sick./ Pop will be waiting for us when we get there on Sunday, according to our escort./ Will write again soon./Just/Fusa
