MRS. R.S. YEGERLEHNER
Dear Daddy –
Ruth M. is here for a few days. I called her last nite. I talked to Dr. Cole yesterday and he said Mother couldn’t last much longer. I was down yesterday & again today. She can’t keep her teeth in now and has a sore on her left side that gives her a lot of pain. She is suffering more from that than her abdomen. Earl, Romaine & Jerry brought Ruth over. She doesn’t know how long she will stay or how she will go back. She said she had her work planned so she could get away most any time. Romaine said for her not to stay too long because she (Romaine) might get hungry. I told Romaine she could live on her reserve – and she has gained enough since her appendectomy to do that. She is a good looking young lady and thinking about what college she will attend next fall. Is thinking some about Purdue, but nothing certain about it. Statons were gone today so Mrs. James & Jimmy rode to Laf. with us just for the trip. Mark & David went along and John stayed home. One of the Sisters at Earl Park rode back from Laf. with us. She held David and he slept on her lap until she got out. It’s getting late and I am sleepy so will call this a letter – Have yours up to Oct. 1. I just learned that Cracker & Gerald are divorced & she is working for Allison in Indpls. & her mother is keeping the baby. Gerald had an affair.
