"This may be late for I didn't get it written yesterday. I spent much of yesterday making some quilting frames and putting the quilt in the frames. It is the pieced baby quilt and the pieces are so little I was afraid I couldn't keep it stretched smooth with the hoops. I finally got it in the frames and started a little of the quilting. The other one is finally all finished but I think I'll wash it before I send it to Patty. It doesn't look soiled but so many people have looked at it I think it needs the washing.
The most interesting thing that happened this week was a lecture by Senator Sam Ervin. He opened our bicentennial celebration and talked about the freedoms set down for us in the U.S. Constitution.
No, we couldn't have come to Uncle Francis' funeral but we want to help pay for the flowers. You keep the money I'm sending and the money Buddy gave you. Beulah does so much for you that neither of us can do so at least let us share in the flowers.
Are you taking your vitamins now and eating bananas? You'd better be--especially with the cold weather coming.
It is dark so surely B will be coming inside soon. We're having warmed over soup so I'd better get it on the stove.
Hope you are fine."
