Company From Nevada (Gladys)

1943-08-30 (GRY)Letter transcription:


Dear Daddy – Our company arrived from Nevada today – Glenn is all stopped up from the Indiana air – says you couldn’t give him this country – Pauline’s home is in Pa. so they are going on over there then come back after a few days rest. Jim is going to try and come on a week-end leave. Dr. Cole came yesterday and wants me to take Mother back to the hospital. I think I’ll take her back tomorrow evening. I’ll have Bob take her in the ambulance. Dr. Cole says he doesn’t think x-ray treatment advisable because of the reaction so many people get form it. Glenn’s baby is heavier than David but D. is taller – Will take pictures of them together tomorrow. I can understand how Jimmy would be larger – he has an enormous appetite – and eating has always been a nuisance to David. The[y] drove thru in a Ford coupe – stopping at nights at tourist camps were on the way a week. We are going to get a quarter of beef from Parttens next week. Have to turn in 800 points which will be 2 ½ or 3 months ahead. Am going to have to put David on pasteurized milk after I turn in our meat stamps but I think he will be ready to change in another month. I will have to chase the boys to bed – They want to talk all nite to Glenn.

Love Mother

    Okay, remind me where Glen is on the family tree. Obviously a different Glen from the one in Clay County. Obviously too, part of the clan that Cousin Gerry belongs to.

    So things are not looking so good for Emma….about to go to the hospital in an ambulance. Did she die at home or in the hospital?

    “The[y] drove thru in a Ford coupe – stopping at nights at tourist camps were on the way a week.” Life in the USA before the Interstate Highway System was built (Eisenhower admin).
