A special treat

For those of my readers who have been following along you might already know this, the majority of the letters published on my blog are by my grandparents, Dr. Roscoe S. Yegerlehner and his wife, Gladys. Occasionally, letters from other individuals were also saved. Today and tomorrow the blog will feature letters from Roscoe and Gladys’ two oldest sons to their father. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

Letter transcription:

Kentland, Ind.
Jan 3, 1943

Dear Daddy,

Yesterday I went to Lafayette and I got a “32” lockeed P.38. It was .40¢. But I haven’t tried to put it together yet. I got a pair of ice skates for Christmas and uncle Floyd was here today and put them in my bed. That made me mad. Well, anyway he’s a good sport. Well this is the last day of vacation and I don’t like it. Well I guess that school is school. The wind is blowing now and maybe that there may not be any school tomorrow. I sure hope so.

With love,

    Did he really write that Floyd put the skates “in my bed.” Couldn’t make out the words in the photograph. Floyd had the reputation of the being the practical joker in the family.
