Tell the News (Mark)

May 15, 1943

Dear Daddy,

Since school is out, I wanted to tell the news In school I passed to the fifth grade. John passed to the eight grade. Grandma Foster is coming tomorrow and I am going to bake a cake.

I am taking gardening and baking the 4-H. In my garden I have up: peas, radishes, lettuce, carrots, spinach, onions, and potatoes. But unluckily a horse got in all the gardens around here and ruined some of the stuff. Well that is about all I have to say

Love Markie

P.S. David is beginning to say Da-Da.

    Very cute letter…and signed “Markie” But he outgrew that name.

    Too bad about the horse!
