Happy Father’s Day (John)

1943-06-19 #1 JohnLetter transcription:


Dear Daddy,

Since tomorrow is Father’s Day I am writing you a letter. I am sorry I didn’t think about getting a gretting off to you in time for you to get it tomorrow. I have had to mow the lawn quite a lot this spring because it has been hot and wet. Mother had David’s picture taken by a photographer. He had his mouth open and maybe his two teeth will show. David can pull up to sitting position and he can take a few steps when somebody is holding on to him. David woke before his map was finished and he is kind of cross. He’s just had dinner so maybe will take a nap.

Your loving son,

John (January 1943)

    This still happens sometimes: “David woke before his map was finished and he is kind of cross.” 🙂

    I love that picture of John.
