[Wright 533 Postmark Jan. 9, 1963 – handwritten by David]

Dear David –

It doesn’t seem possible this can be Jan. 8, but here we are. Dad is having to spend most of the day – or the morning at least in the hospital. He has been getting a few evening at home however. He brought the drawers, from the cabinet where we keep the change box out to the house and after a sanding and varnish job they book like the rest of the drawers Kitterman put in. He also hung a door in front of the safe. Someone backed into our aluminum railing and bent it out of shape, and broke the base of the post on the north side – the post that rested on the bottom step. Dad had just secured the thing at the top, now we have to have one new post put in. We have no idea who caused the damage but, they had to be “away out” to manage to bank into it.

We are to get a new window put in a week from Thursday. The Insurance adjustor told Doris Wilson he could get it installed by a firm in Lafayette for at least $30.00 less than it has been costing. We said fine, you take care of it. It sounds like we have been “had” on all the other replacements – or the Insurance Company, since they have paid for all of the windows.

Mark called last night and while he was talking to me he said “Becky, stop that” – I, of course, asked him what she was doing. She was hitting Kirk in the face. In about a year, I think Kirk will probably be returning the blows. The way he is growing I think he will be able to take care of himself. They are coming

1963-01-09-gry-p-2[page 2] down for the weekend. Taxes to figure and Mark wants to have his car worked on.

I have to attend a meeting this afternoon, so must get myself a bit of lunch and get a few things done before I go.

Love Mother

    ” to manage to bank into it.” should read “back into it.”

    “We are to get a new window put in a week from Thursday.” Hmmmm…..I wonder if this is a reference to the huge living room windows. Birds were always flying into them.
