Dear Mother & Daddy,
"Bob got the scholarship. He called us Thursday night at supper time & was real excited about it. They had told him that afternoon. There are 20 out of the 35 who tried for it that were accepted as James Scholars. He said the three days of interviews were the most intensive and fabulous experience he ever had. He went home with doctors two evenings for dinner and said that was fun. They talked about their experiences as medical students.
Those kids will probably knock themselves out working to make the program a success. Bob expects, I think, to get into regular hospital work real early. Doctors are needed so badly & the schools are beginning to see how much time they waste in the training.
I went to the As You Like It luncheon on Thursday & to a tea for retired faculty Friday afternoon so my work was interrupted.
Yesterday was a gorgeous fall day but it has been raining and cold all day today.
My sewing is coming along slowly. I have a dress almost done. We finally took time today to mark the hem & maybe I can put it in tonight. B still measures them for me with the yardstick.
Hope you both are fine. I still haven't answered Beulah's letter and she will soon have a birthday. They sure roll around fast."
Lots of love,
