Dear David

Your two good letters delighted me very much, and thanks so much for the pictures. It’s an excellent on of you, and it’s interesting to see where you live and work.

I hope all went well with your two important visitors. I gave Harold your message about “Charlie.”

Your description of the warm Sunday which made you want to sleep, made me smile. It was near zero the morning your letter came.

Yesterday I went to Watseka to the podiatrist, and felt as if I were out of jail. First time I had been out for so long, it has been so very icy. Marie takes me in her car.

Your desk looks interesting. Who is that hanging behind the elephant? Is it Ike or Dick?

Your grades were very wonderful, and I was very happy about that, and of course so was your mother. She was in for a minute the other day. She had been to Lafayette for XRay treatment.

Knowing about your activities and interests at school gives me an uplift, and your letters are like a breath of fresh air.

Sincerely
Ruth M.

    “It’s an excellent on of you” should read “one”

    “I hope all went well with your two important visitors. I gave Harold your message about “Charlie.”” Memory fails….I don’t have a clue.

    “Who is that hanging behind the elephant? Is it Ike or Dick?” It was probably Dick Nixon. I’ll have to try to find the pictures of my dorm room. Very embarrassing.
