Dear Daddy – Yours of July 12 – 24 & 25 came today up to the 28th came earlier this week. The weather we have is something to write about – not then cool then hot again all in one week. It was cool last nite but is warming up this afternoon. Mark has David out in the buggy while I write. David is so full of pep – he wants action. John is to come home Mon. I am to meet him in Laf. Your mother said Tillie Z. – Earl & his bride are going to Whiting & had asked her to come this far – said she was afraid she would wear her welcome out but I am going to write her to come if she can. I suppose you know Earl is to be married Aug 15. Mark has been trying to get the lawn mowed this week but hasn’t finished it yet. John has done the lawn work this summer and Mark had the garden. John had the hardest job because he had to mow every week & Mark hasn’t worked that much in the garden. You mentioned talking to someone who had come out in June and how things have changed. When you wrote about Mark or John sending you an envelope of steak odor – we said “what steak” – that is about a memory with us – We indulge once in a while but not often – It takes one person’s entire week’s points to buy 1 lb steak. Plain round steak is 46¢ lb. Mother is about the same today – can’t see much change. The detasseling is over & camp broken up today. That project gets bigger every year. I see Mark coming with David.

Love Mother

    “not then cool then hot again” should read “hot then cool then hot again”

    “David is so full of pep – he wants action.” I need some of that energy NOW. 🙂

    “John had the hardest job because he had to mow every week & Mark hasn’t worked that much in the garden.” She had quite a job keeping these two in harness!

    ” It takes one person’s entire week’s points to buy 1 lb steak.” It’s really hard to identify with what they were going through.
