Chicken Frys (Gladys)

1943-11-28 (GRY)Letter transcription:


Dear Daddy – Sun. evening – John is practicing – Miss S. gave him a new piece Sat. and he has been working hard on it. Doesn’t work so hard on the oboe this year due to the absence of a band teacher. Mark isn’t in band at all due to the above mentioned reason. Mark is building a model plane for Bobby at present. David is in bed asleep. He took such a long nap this afternoon he wasn’t quite ready to go to sleep when he went to bed. We had dinner with Zells today. They had the first of their Sept. flock. They want to have them all sold off by Christmas. I want to buy a few to put in our locker. Took David to Sunday School again. He likes to go very well now. Tried to sing and did a pretty good job making a noise most of the time. I think he should be able to go with the little tots by spring, but at present he is better with his mother. He isn’t the quite type like J. & M. were about going to meetings. He distinctly doesn’t like [to] sit on laps long at a time. He likes to move around the most of his waking hours. So far we haven’t had much cold weather – no really cold spells yet. This time last year we had had a heavy snow and the cold had set in for all winter. We are still using the 2 tons of Ind. coal I got the first of Nov. I think we still have half of it. Chet said he was definitely promised Va. Coal in Dec. & we could have a ton, so I think we will get along with our coal supply in good shape. The furnace is working very good now with this Ind. coal. Here’s another wish for a Merry Christmas. Yours of Nov. 9 rec’d yesterday.

Love Mother

    “He isn’t the quite type like J. & M.” should read “quiet type”

    I have definitely turned into the quiet type. 🙂
