A Cold Today (Gladys)

1943-12-08 (GRY)Letter transcription:


Dear Daddy – Another wintry day and no mail. It has been 10 days since I last received a letter. David has a cold today. I called Dr. M. and he said to give him ¼ tablet sulfadiazine every 4 hrs. He certainly is peppy enough but coughs and has a runny nose. He did have a temp. this A.M. but none this P.M. John & Mark are both home from school. Mark is out playing with Dean M. – John is practicing on the piano. There is a lot of flue around. John said 30 were absent from school today. David seems to have what is going around. He hasn’t been around anyone with a cold but got one anyway. Mrs. Z. and Martha stayed away from us while they had theirs last week. I was going to take Lucile to Laf. today but didn’t because of David. If he gets over his cold may go Fri. or tomorrow. I haven’t much shopping to do, but usually find something to buy – want to get a record for John. Dr. Van & Dr. Limp have redecorated their office and the Sr. Dr. is ready to do business again. I heard he didn’t want to come back but of course could do nothing about an honorable discharge – guess it was a retirement. Not much news today – haven’t been away from home.

Love – Mother

    “He certainly is peppy enough but coughs and has a runny nose.” 🙂

    ” John said 30 were absent from school today.” Oy. School teaching is a high risk profession!
