Apr. 28

Dear Mother,

Somehow I didn’t get a letter today neither this AM or PM. Maybe Mark forgot to mail it again.

There isn’t anything new to report on the house condition. Maybe a little. I called the lady in Evanston that we went to see last night and she wants to rent her place if her husband is shipped out and is to write me or I’m to call her in a week or two.

Joe & I went out to the lakes but it was useless – There were cottages but no water – only a community pump and a chemical toilet. They say the chemical toilet works pretty good. Those are $100 per month. We went into one but I wouldn’t call them at all good for that price. There are some there completely modernized but their owners don’t know just what they want to do with them for the summer so they are what one might call

[page 2] frozen. We stopped in Libertyville and asked the real estate office but nothing to rent – Also in the town of Gray’s Lake and the same thing there. Some of the Drs. around the Hosp. are learning that I want a house so the word is getting around and maybe sooner or later something will turn up. I’ve been to the office here in Lake Forest but they all have the same story.

I sent four white shirts to the laundry on Tue. and got them back today. All four for 53 cents and they are really done up in fine shape. That is the cheapest and best I ever had laundry done. I was really surprised at the price as well as the service.

Well, I’ll keep you informed on the house situation as time goes along. And here is hoping –
Love Daddy

    ” Maybe Mark forgot to mail it again.” 😦

    “There were cottages but no water – only a community pump and a chemical toilet.” Oh, not good.

    “All four for 53 cents and they are really done up in fine shape.” Best deal ever!
