Ages (Roscoe)

Letter transcription:

Sept. 18, 1943
Lieut. R.S. Yegerlehner USNR
Navy 60
F.P.O. San F. Calif.

Dear Mother,

Your letter dated Sept. 4 came yesterday – The pictures were in it, and as you said John’s picture was pretty blurred. The others were OK and very good.

Glenn’s baby seems to be a little on the fatty order but I guess that it the way some of them come.

All the pictures of D. seem to indicate that he is pretty much on the ball – Looks as if he is enjoying himself most of the time and of course I can’t tell if his hair is curly or not in those pictures. His mother looks very

[page 2] good in the picture sitting on the front step. Her hair is curley. The ages of all the kids were written below their pictures but I noticed that D.’s mother didn’t put her age under her picture. Maybe that isn’t necessary for me to even say that but I just thought of it as I was looking at the pictures.

You gave a financial report. On Sept. 4, $213⁰⁰, I wondered if that was after rent was deducted. I sent $250⁰⁰ again on the 16th so that should help things along a little but you will probably need extra for hospital bill.

[page 3] I liked the description of the rearrangement of the furniture. It was a little different and unusual for I don’t believe you ever mentioned things like that before – Maybe you hadn’t changed things before. No that can’t be true! And maybe you wrote me about them but I forgot – you know I sometimes forget some things pretty easy. Other things I remember very well – about you and the boys – you can bet your bottom dollar on that.

I’ve had a heck of a time getting this written and it’s all disjointed anyway
Love Daddy

    ” The ages of all the kids were written below their pictures but I noticed that D.’s mother didn’t put her age ” LOL 🙂

    It’s so nice to see the very picture that he mentions.

    Nice: ” Other things I remember very well – about you and the boys – you can bet your bottom dollar on that.” 🙂

    “that it the way some of them come” should read “that is the way”
