News from Wilma Bryan

Letter transcription:

Dear Mrs. Yegerlehner,

Patricia received the lovely little shoes a few days ago. They had been sent to Brownwood. I’m sure they were your handiwork. They are the prettiest I’ve seen.

We have a big fence around our yard. Mary Lynn loves to learn all the gate latches. Still a “tomboy.” But wants to help wash dishes, cook, and in general do everything about the place. Here’s hoping that helpful attitude continues.

Was so sorry to hear about Dr. office burning. – Hope he is all back in order by now.

Patricia still the good girl.

The weather here has been mostly sunshine, except a tornado in the eastern part of the state. Would like to see some snow.


[Editor’s note: The WWII collection contains the birth announcement for Patricia Bryan. It can be found here.]

    “Here’s hoping that helpful attitude continues.” LOL 🙂

    “Was so sorry to hear about Dr. office burning.” Huh? What’s that about?

      There was a fire in your dad’s office between December and January 1945-46. I haven’t been able to unearth any newspaper clippings yet, but several letters mention the fire, but few details are provided.
