MRS. R.S. YEGERLEHNER
Dear Daddy – Just returned from Laf. Had my eyes re-checked and had a nose & throat treatment. Dr. Ade said my throat looked better. Hope this warm weather helps me to get it cleared up again. John went with us and got a new pair of shoes. I think he has larger feet now than you have. He has trouble getting shoes that feel right. I hope these do better than the last pair ($4.50). I have mentioned a woman living at the Kent apts. – whose husband is in the Navy – She had a baby (9 mo. old). He had been sick and last night they took him to the hospital and operated but he didn’t survive. I don’t know many details but understand the baby had been ill several days. I think Dr. Rumkorf was called yesterday and he evidently took him to the hospital. The mother called me yesterday and wanted to know what to do – I told her to follow the Doctor’s orders – she had had Dr. M. a time or two. I suppose she thought I would tell her something to do but I told her to do as the Dr. told her – take the baby to the hospital. I have been trying to write this in competition with the radio – from one play to another. I called Lucile this a.m. and Ed was home with a stomach ache – There seems to be several cases around. I think Mark got a little bug – He threw up after I got home – but feels better now. Didn’t have a temp. He is asleep now. David tried to say button & pretty today.
