Federal Figures (Gladys)

1944-02-28 (GRY)Letter transcription:

NAVY 133



Dear Daddy – I talked to Agnes about filing the Federal and she wants the figures on the entire salary. I told her the figures you sent but she insists she needs the whole amt. of salary you receive. I should know it but it has been changed since you received your promotion and then too isn’t there an increase for foreign duty? I hope you get this in time to answer so we can file by Mar. 15. It is cold again today. We have had some very warm springy days, but the temp was down to freezing this a.m. Incidentally, I have a sore throat. I went down this morning and had a treatment. As soon as I get David fed and to bed I am going to try and get some rest. No rest while he is up. I think I’ll feel better after a little rest. I saw Red Bruck in town this morning. This is the first time I have seen him since he has been in the Army. I would think he would be over Army age now and be back home to stay, but I don’t know if that is the case or not. Maybe he would rather stay in. Rose & Casey run the store for him. It’s nearly time for J. & M. to come home for lunch and I have to get David ready too.

Love Mother

    “As soon as I get David fed and to bed I am going to try and get some rest. No rest while he is up.” 🙂 Poor Gladys….

    Interesting link to the Red Bruck information. I don’t think I ever was in the Catholic cemetery; no surprise there.
