Pearl Harbor Day (Gladys)

1943-12-07 (GRY)Letter transcription:


Dear Daddy –

Today being the second anniversary of Pearl Harbor much has been said on the subject over the radio. Today was Literary Club Christmas meeting at Mrs. Mathews. I didn’t go. Went to Music Club yesterday, and plan to go to Laf. tomorrow, so thought I had better stay home this afternoon and do a few things. David is up from a too short nap – walking around looking for something to amuse himself. He was bothering the coffee table but I got him away from there. He knows he should leave it alone but doesn’t always do that. I just cleaned the mirror door and hear him there now, and know it will be smeared again. Just so he doesn’t pound on it with something hard I allow him to play there. John wrote you a v-mail last nite. Mark wrote one several days ago but didn’t mail it – I’ll try to get it in today’s mail. It is nice and sunny out today. Yesterday it was cold and cloudy and I thought winter had started but it’s warmer today. No letters now for over a week but I keep looking. I see Jimmy and Martha chasing a little Pekineese (Poor dog).

Love – Mother
