Dear David

I hope things are going well with you during your last lap of school year, and that you are enjoying it. Your mother was in several days ago and brought me a copy of LIFE which published your letter. Hurray for you, how true and well put. Hurray for you, how true and well put. I’m proud of you. I do not get LIFE and therefore did not read the letter on which you commented, but I had read about her and her activities in other publications. Her children are to be pity and I hope they are able to think for themselves when they grow up.

Your mother also told me about your trip to Indianapolis with Bonnie, and I had good report on Bonnie also. When she comes home with you I shall look forward to meeting her.

The deal which was hanging in the balance regarding sale of the hotel has not come through and things seem at a standstill. Also Pronger has been very slow in getting the apartment ready, but I am going into it as soon as it is finished, whether the hotel is sold by then or not.

We are having summer today, and I hope it remains so there will be no more big fuel bills. There will be one for April, certainly, it was so cold most of the time.

By for now
Love
Grandma

    “Hurray for you, how true and well put.” repeated sentence

    “I hope they are able to think for themselves when they grow up.” Indeed, her son did become religious as an adult.

    Ah, the clipping from LIFE magazine….my past coming back to haunt me! But at least I’ve changed my name!
