District Convention 1943

District Convention 1943

“Dearest Kids,

We are feeling pretty good now and cold is better, only hope you didn’t get it from us. Tonite I’m going to Monte to a Dist Convention. I should have been there this afternoon to but couldn’t on account of Susan. They are having a a big banquet at supper but will miss that to as I’m going from here at 7 with Mrs Danielson. I’m one to install the new Dist officers. Wished it was over with.

We had a nice long letter from Cliff yesterday. He sent home $70.00. $20.00 for me to keep and $50.00 to put into the bank for him. He thinks he will get a furlough in two months.

I got myself a blue purse and gloves today and had my hair set for tonite. Dad feels good and seems to enjoy to work again. He sais he doesnt do much himself but you know him.

We haven’t heard from Beany. Hope hes alright. Has Dolores gone yet? Did she like that piece I gave her. It will look so much better when you put it into a frame. Something you kids can always remember me by and that I made it with my clumsy hands.

This sure is a swell day. It seems so nice after such a terrible winter.

So Elaine and Doug came Sunday nite? Milly wants to ask them out here but I dont fancy the idea till I get my house cleaning done. ‘Know Sir’.

I sent you a box Tues. Hope you got it Wed so it will be fresh for you. I’ll send you another loaf next week when I bake again. I love to do things like that for my kids.

Well must close and get things ready for supper. Come home soon as you can.

I love you both so much. With greetings from us all,

Mom”
