Just finished re reading your air mail letter of May 8. That is two days later than you latest v-mail but the v-mail came 3-4 days ago. So I can’t tell which is faster. So I guess maybe if you wrote a few of each it would be better. U
You mentioned about the bank balance – I wouldn’t buy bonds at present with the balance that low, and if I can ever get my money I’ll send it to help. Not being paid since Jan. makes a
[page 2] a little balance on hand. Hope the boys’ colds are better and by this time the warm weather should help.
The second box you sent hasn’t arrived as yet but maybe it will be along. The chicken bones were still in the box but they weren’t in too good condition. All tough and stuck together.
And I didn’t write that v-mail letter like I said I was going to. I forgot whether I told you in yesterday’s letter – I got radish, lettuce, carrot and turnip seed from Mom yesterday.
It’s chow time will write more tomorrow

Yikes! I wish we could clear up this mystery: “The chicken bones were still in the box but they weren’t in too good condition. All tough and stuck together.” Surely it’s not literally chicken bones. How could they be tough and stuck together? Gladys would never have shipped REAL chicken bones that were not thoroughly dry.
