Dear Mother & Daddy,
"This week has been wonderfully cool. Today was the last of summer school and everyone was so grateful for a cool day for graduation. It was outside and no one had to melt in their heavy cap and gown. Usually the sun beats down and everyone roasts.
Bob has managed pretty well to keep busy this week. He picked a croquet set out of the catalog and ordered it so he's waited for it to come. It came today so everyone has had fun with it. He does real well at saving his money and still has some including his silver dollar and the $2 bill that Phyllis gave him.

I've been painting an old chest of drawers and it has taken me all week to give it three coats of ivory paint. It was dark.
We had a letter from Japan asking us to keep a Japanese high school girl while she attended high school here next year. We wanted to take her but simply haven't the room. We did find a home for her and promised to help her all we can. She will have money for her room and board.
We are going to have a little birthday party for Ann on Wednesday. She wanted a doll stroller so we have that hidden.

We're all fine and hope all of you are too."
