Appointment Book

[Wright 533 – handwritten by David]
May 16 – 1962

Dear David –

This is the stationary on which the printer made a mistake – using a q instead of a g. I thought you wouldn’t mind if I used it for writing to you.

I worked until after one o’clock last night. Dad wanted some new sheets for the appointment book and I cut stencils and after club yesterday ran them off on the mimeograph – 500 sheets run thru twice. I brought them home and had to run the dates in on the typewriter. Dad left the office early to go to Lafayette to a hospital meeting. I worked on the project until time to go to a meeting I had planned to attend. After I came home I resumed the project and finished it. The reason it took so long, we started with the new pages as of today, which meant I had to copy all the appointments which had been made until July 24 – that was as far ahead as Edna had made sheets. I am glad it is done, because Dad wanted to start using the new sheets.

It has been so hot here the air conditioners are running – whereas last week at this time we needed heat. So much for Indiana. Geo. Ade is credited with having said Indiana doesn’t have a climate, just an assortment of weather. We went to the

1962-05-16-gry-p-2[page 2] club for dinner Sunday – since it was Mother’s Day. The place was so crowded there wasn’t an empty table. I felt sorry for the waitresses.

Well the stock market took a turn for the better yesterday – so maybe your telegram did some good – but I doubt it. He probably did even see it. I know you felt like doing what you did but I wouldn’t bother myself on such a matter. We bought some more Ford. We have information that it is going to split 2 for 1 this month. We now have 50 shares and after the split will have 100. Dad gave me 10 shares of Devoe-Reynolds for a Mother’s Day gift. Also an orchid corsage.

Edna is going to work May 28 & 29 then since the 30th is a holiday, begin her vacation on May 31 and come back to work June 14. I think that will work out OK.

Since I worked so late last night I didn’t get up very early and I see it is now 10 a.m. so I must get along.

Love Mother

    Far worse things have been done to Yegerlehner than a “q” !!!

    What a chore that appointment book was in 1962!

    “so maybe your telegram did some good – but I doubt it. He probably did even see it. I know you felt like doing what you did but I wouldn’t bother myself on such a matter.” I have no idea. Another of history’s mysteries.
