Trip Home

[Wright 533 – handwritten by David]
May 4 – 1962

Dear David,

I thought you might want this card. – Don’t they have your I.U. address? We arrived home Wed. around 7 p.m. The sun was shining on us most of the way home. We stopped at Ralph’s and Clarence’s but didn’t find anyone home at the latter’s.

Kentland is still cleaning up the storm debris. Electric saws going all over the place. I drove past the grade building today. There are bricks all around the place. I don’t know how Dad got in there without getting hit. I was in Raub last night to give a program and saw the school building for the first time. It is so much nicer than this old building here, I think it is a good thing we can use it. There is three weeks more of school for Kentland.

Dad is in the hospital today on a baby case. He went over to do surgery this a.m. and one of his OB’s went over early this a.m. His car was still not at the office as I came to the beauty parlour at 1:45.

Summer is here today but according to the forecast we are to have cooler weather tomorrow.

Love Mother

    I’m guessing she meant the grade school building, and that the Raub school building was being used for the final three weeks of school because of the damage.
