Dear David:

It is 10 below here this morning at 10 o’clock. According to the Chicago forecast I think it was to reach a 5 below, but I didn’t think they really meant it would get that cold. The schools are still not open – due to drifted country roads the school buses aren’t running. From what I can hear from parents, most of them are ready for the school to reopen.

We still haven’t decided definitely how we will travel. I talked to L. Kresler two weeks ago about a conducted tour, but the more we think about it the more we think we wouldn’t get much rest and one of the reasons we want to take a two or three months vacations is to get away from work and hurrying around. I think those conducted tours have too many time schedules to meet.

I was very glad about your grad report. From the difficulty you were having with the two courses, I am glad you didn’t flunk, but of course, I am expecting much better from you next semester, or I should say the present semester.

John’s address is
Dr. John Yegerlehner
FAK KIP
Djalan Semarang
Malang (Djatim)

We liked the little cartoon you enclosed in your letter.

I have deposited $225.00 to your account. I also like your sense of humor about GM & INR. Of course when GM goes up, your four shares increase in value also.

I think we had about the smallest attendance at Sunday school and Church yesterday we have had this winter. Of course, some people couldn’t get out because of the drifted snow. Bill Williams has been keeping our driveway and the street here cleared with his earth moving machine.

I hate to think of going out, but since all my errand runners are gone, I will have to brave the cold myself.

If you have a preference as to which weekend you would rather come home for that Official Board meeting, let me know.

Love Mother

    “…one of the reasons we want to take a two or three months vacations is to get away from work and hurrying around. I think those conducted tours have too many time schedules to meet.” I couldn’t agree more!

    “your grad report” should read “grade report”

    “since all my errand runners are gone” 🙂 🙂 🙂
