Dear Sis & Co. –
It is now 0645, ask Jake, he will tell you what time that is. Just one hour and thirty minutes ago I was talking with Glenn, yes he called me from Lovelock, says he is OK and feeling fine but that Pauline is acting up, says she took a pot shot at him and says she will shoot both of them or something. Anyway, Glenn wants me to have the boys, so does Pauline for that matter so we are going out there to get them, the boys I mean. We will leave here Saturday, go to NY. Spend Sunday and Monday in N.Y., leave N.Y. early Tuesday, Christmas Day, go to Terre Haute, try to get two new tires, so if Jake can swing a deal for me for two new tires in Kentland, please have him do so and write me at 2226 Sycamore, we will only be in Terre Haute, just long enough to check a few
[page 2] things then onto Kentland to spend a few minutes with you folks then on to Lovelock. It is about 3,000 miles from N.Y. to L. so we will have to keeping moving as Thelma has only a limited time. But if it is at all possible for Jakie to get me two new tires in Kentland please do so and write me that he has as soon as we arrive in Terre Haute we will either call or wire you.
