Just returned from the dentist – had two teeth filled and have one or two to be worked on at a later date. Many of the persons who have been up the line complain of their teeth going bad but mine have done very well. Just need 3-4 small fillings and that is about normal for me in this period of time.
In one of your letters yesterday you told of D. being a little spoiled and that John & Mark thought he should be corrected and their saying of what Daddy would do. Sometimes I wonder, and I’m a little surprised that they think punishment is in
[page 2] order when their mother doesn’t seem to feel that way. Maybe they are a little hard on him and or could it be D.’s mother is a little more or should I say less strict now that when J. & M. were coming along. Whichever it is I’m not worried because I know D.’s mother will do right by him.
The clipping about Wymond K. was OK. I’m sure the whole family is proud of him and of course his wife must be glad he is back not to say anything about how glad he is to be back home with the family. Of course now he has to wonder to where he will be sent next.
Your v-mail dated Nov. 26 just came – you wished me a Merry Christmas – a little early but appreciated just the same. There
[page 3] was also a letter from the old camp and one from the Master of a Lodge here inviting me to their meeting tomorrow night – I’m not sure I can make it, however, tomorrow night but will try later.
I was a little late in sending the boys their Christmas money but maybe it will get there in time for them. It won’t take long for them to spend it so I guess I need not worry about that. I’m sure Mark will enjoy his possibly on something to eat or drink. Of course John will buy records or something of the kind & D. – haven’t the slightest idea.
I’ll return the Merry Christmas
