Dear Daddy – Fri & Sat we rec’d 5 letters – the latest written Apr 6 – two back Mar 25 & 26 – but the one I had been looking for – in answer to my letter asking your advice about the yard. You had evidently written once before but I never did get it. There are still a few missing if you have written daily but maybe they will come. Floy & Ruth came over for a while yesterday – Nick bought Floyd’s tools for Buddy. Mark wondered why Uncle F. didn’t give him the tools – I told him there was the little matter of $50. F. & R. are moving to Blufton in about 10 days and Geo Burcham from C.C. is taking Flora job. David is taking a long nap but will soon be time for his 2 P.M. feeding. I got a good pose of him with a toy in his hand – I do hope it turns out well. It is nice and warm out today so will snap one or two. I started taking a roll last week so I will be sure to get a good one somewhere along the way – – Mark is reading (under protest) – Just now our woodpecker did a sound effect on our roof. It was quiet with J. & M. both reading so you know what a laugh that caused. This woodpecker is a pretty regular visitor this spring. – Mark brought three books home from the library and then left them alone as usual, so I told him he had to read them – John has read two, with pleasure – but Mark is reading his [he’s] very much disgusted with me because I am insisting he reads. – – We planted two rows of potatoes yesterday and have two more rows to plant. – – I heard definitely Nick K. has joined the Navy. Hope you get the seeds I sent.

Love Mother

    “Mark wondered why Uncle F. didn’t give him the tools – I told him there was the little matter of $50.” 🙂

    ” Mark brought three books home from the library and then left them alone as usual, so I told him he had to read them – John has read two, with pleasure – but Mark is reading his [he’s] very much disgusted with me because I am insisting he reads.” 😦 Heavy sigh. Mother’s reading habit rubbed off on me.
