Dear Mother & Daddy,
"While supper cooks I'll write to you. Ann has gone to play with a friend and Bruce is here with Bob and everyone is happy. The boys are going to a ball game after supper and Bruce is going to stay all night. This is Bob's birthday celebration really because he is going on a camping trip over the week-end. We'll just have a family dinner Monday but I'll make him a cake for that. He was happy to get the money and the envelopes. I don't know what he'll spend the money for. Right now he has so many different interests it keeps things buzzing around here. He has the train, the stamps, Indian head pennies, and the basement looks like a laboratory. He and some other boys have been doing experiments and every few days we have to write a note so he can get some chemicals at the drug store. They won't sell the stuff to kids for experiments without a note from the parents. I'm glad of it.
Hope you both are fine. I have some pants I'm going to send to Jerry when I can get them tied up. They should fit him."
Lots of love,
