Dear Aunt Gladys –
Mother sent me your letter, and I was to answer right away about the navy blue sox. Somehow or other I always seem to put letter writing off; but I decided to get busy and write you before exams begin.
I’d like very much to have the navy blue sox – that is if you haven’t all ready given them away or something like that. If you have, that is
[page 2] O.k.; but if not I’d appreciate them. I’m learning to knit; and so far have one mitten done. Maybe from now on I’ll be able to do my own knitting.
How’s everyone in Kentland? I went home last weekend, and everyone there is fine. In about two weeks our semester will be over and we’ll all be getting a two week’s vacation. I’m really looking forward to that.
Well, I must get busy. It’s almost
[page 3] time for dinner, and I’m not ready.
Thanks again, Aunt Gladys, for all the things you’ve knitted for me.

“Maybe from now on I’ll be able to do my own knitting.” Did all the women in the 1940s learn how to knit? I know that gene survives!
Such a nice little note to remain in the collection. 🙂
Ah, the nearly extinct thank-you letter! Very sweet.
