Dear Sis & Co. –

Now don’t get all excited there is nothing about which to get excited, I only have reference to the way we are living at present, Thelma does not have time to do any shopping and I am out running around trying to make the connections I want so I do not have much time so what we do buy will be small but good and we will buy the Boys something. I did not mean to cut them out, you know darn well I would buy those Boys something regardless. I left Washington a week ago last Monday, was in Johnstown, Ford City, Pittsburgh and now Erie. Have application in about ten places and am hoping to land a good job here in Erie. Spent two hours with the Sales Manager the other day so I am sure he is interested.

We expect to spend Christmas in Terre Haute, so will be in Kentland either the day before Christmas or two or three days after.

    All this stuff I never knew! I do have a very vivid memory of him, but unfortunately, his chilling racism that distressed my parents comes to mind especially. 😦
