Didn’t Get His Nap (Gladys)

1943-06-19 #2Letter transcription:


Dear Daddy – John & Mark wrote v-mails as Father’s Day greetings. I am going to send you another large picture of David as soon as it is finished – David didn’t get his nap out and was cross until after his 2 P.M. feeding – then I put him in his bed and after some play he has gone to sleep – wrong – he just began to sing – but we are all in the living room & he is alone in the nursery. Mark is at the piano trying to practice for another music lesson. He took one lesson before his tonsillectomy and is just getting ready to start again. He and John hoed and weeded some in the garden but didn’t finish so will go back this evening when it’s cooler. It hasn’t rained now for a few days and it’s hot today. I have been taking Bepron and Mother is taking it too and I believe it is helping her. I am feeling pretty good but take something off & on to keep fit. The heat wave last week-end was pretty hard on her. I have rec’d 10 letters this week – the last being June 5. Also got all three checks & paid the Ins. loan off. Had a letter from Glen and he wants your address – Someone he knows is where you used to be. Their baby is 5 mo. old and almost as heavy as David – but D. is heavy enough to suit me. He should weigh 20 lbs. by his 9th month. All is quiet now. David has gone to sleep – John & Mark are readying & Mother’s mending sox. It is nice & cool here in the living room with a good breeze through. Greetings for Father’s Day.

Love Mother

    Is this the first we’ve heard of MARK taking piano lessons?

    Which Glen was this? One of the Yegerlehners?

    “John & Mark are readying” should be “reading”…..
