Dear Daddy – Sunday and J. & M. are in Church. Mother is in T.H. for a visit so D. & I are alone. I just finished bathing & feeding D. and he is having a good kick in his bed. He has a play pen now (Mrs. Shirk loaned it to me). and likes to roll around in it. You wouldn’t recognize the den – (now nursery) – what with all the baby furnishings. I am glad we have that room where it is. It is ideal for a nursery – with all the sunlite it gets. I took David with us (Mark & I) to the garden yesterday and he took a nap in the sunshine. We put out some onion set – sowed carrot seed, spinach & some lettuce – We now have all those & peas. We are going to plant about 30 lbs of potatoes in our garden & several rows of beans. Potatoes are .75 pack & up now. It is a grand day and this afternoon I want to take David for a nice long walk. After all the shut in this winter I can’t be outside too much to suit me. I was so tired when we came in last nite but feel fine today. John stayed in and listened to the Opera yesterday but it will soon be over for the summer. He is to play for Music Club tomorrow. He has been working very hard on the pieces he is playing. I saw two news items I thought might interest you – Datzman’s have a new baby boy. Betty Beaver had a baby boy premature but it died. I haven’t heard from your Mother this week so don’t know how Ralph’s back is – They had Shorer give him an adjustment last Sat but we left Sun so don’t know the results (if any). I thought the adjustment business would interest you. Your Mother will give the details when she writes.Three letters this week.

Love – Mother

    Interesting: “John stayed in and listened to the Opera yesterday but it will soon be over for the summer. ” This was written April 11th. The opera broadcast season seems to be about the same length these days. It came to an end early in May this year.

    There is a subtext here: “They had Shorer give him an adjustment last Sat but we left Sun so don’t know the results (if any). I thought the adjustment business would interest you.” My father had nothing but contempt for chiropractors. He got very annoyed when any of his patients went to a chiropractor, so I’m sure that’s why mother made reference to Ralph having an “adjustment.”
