Dear Daddy – We are about ready to leave for Wilmington with 350 sweet potatoe plants & some snap plants. Mother is feeding D. his 2 P.M. meal – the boys are ready and waiting, both had hair cuts & a bath so they look ready to be seen. I feel a little rushed but think I’ll be O.K. after we get started. It has cleared off and seems to be getting hot this P.M. so maybe the ground will be in the right shape for Earl to set out plants today. I told you in yesterday’s v-mail David cut his first tooth. The one next to it is about ready to pop thru. I took all your clothes out and aired them yesterday. Those little moth bugs had been in and I used a new spray – hope this one works. I wish your Navy uniforms were here – I am afraid they will be moulded beyond help staying stored. No letters today but had yours of the 10th the 20th – not bad – 10 days. It is about time we want to start and I have a few things to do yet – will write a more detailed letter when time permits. Grand day after all the rain this week.
