Dear Mother & Daddy,
"It doesn't seem possible that you were here a week ago. We sure did enjoy having all of you and wish you could have stayed longer. I've thought of a dozen things I meant to show you or talk about & forgot them all.
I know you were anxious to get home but I'm so glad Buddy took you thru Springfield. I knew he would even if he hadn't mentioned it. He always stops there & I'm so glad Beulah could come.
We still have ham. I haven't done much cooking since you were here. B said he'd sure be glad when we could have hamburgers again. We haven't cracked any of the nuts yet but I haven't done anything much except run around and type.
There have been a lot of things I had to go to. I visited Bob's room, went to a PTA Board meeting, a tea, a dinner last night & go to another one tonight & tomorrow night. Then I had to get a letter written about our church Xmas party & get that to the church secretary. Tomorrow we'll have to address them to all church members.
Every chance I had, I typed and finally mailed my manuscripts on Thursday. Now the editor has them and I'm keeping my fingers crossed in hopes she keeps one of them. I wrote two. She is very slow so I probably won't hear from her in months and months but I'll keep hoping.
B is at school but is coming home soon so we can go after some shoes for Bob. He has to go back to a meeting after lunch so I must get ready to go.
Hope you are all rested by now."
Lots of love,
