Engine trouble caused me to spend another all night session on the road, and I didn’t arrive home till Monday noon.
As a result, I was so sleepy last evening I just couldn’t write. Went to bed at 7:00 o’clock. Will tell you all about it when I write this evening.
Am sending this special so you won’t have to wait so long. Had such a nice visit with my lover girl.
Must go to work now. I’m the boss today, as Dad is away.
The dates associated with most of these letters came from the post mark on the envelope the letters were placed in when the museum received them as a donation. Some of the letters may seem out of place, or out of order because of this. As we have no clear knowledge of exactly when all the letters were written, we have kept them in order of the dates on the envelopes.
