Dear David:

Yours received this AM. You can do it Louie, so keep those grades up there. You will have to concentrate on the French a little more, eh?

I checked with the bank this morning and according to their account you had a balance of $58.49. According to my figures the deposits have been as follows: Dec. 3 – $200.00; Jan. 30 – $225.00; Feb. 11 – $75.00; March 1 – $100.00 and $2.00 from GM in March.

You seem to [be] concentrating on Bonnie. I hope you both enjoyed the opera. Wish I could have been there to hear it also. Since I couldn’t I will enjoy my records. I have Fidelio playing now.

There is some work being done at the Church in the way of painting, etc. The dining rooms have been paneled and painted and the vestibule on the east side of the basement is to be painted next. We are getting ready for the big District meeting we will be entertaining next week (the 28th). I have been conducting a study class on Wed. a.m.’s at the Church, so was there this morning. Rev. Fields had a woman from a Lafayette church come up Monday night to talk to the Primary Dept. workers about the material being used in that Dept. I don’t want to sound unprogressive, but I think I could have told her a few things on my own. You know there is nothing like experience to learn a thing and since I had had more than 12 years working in that Dept. I think I know a few things. If the teachers in that Dept. didn’t have anything to do but prepare material for their classes on Sunday morning, they might like the material she was trying to promote, but they have a few other to do – like helping make a living. I think the people in the Department of Education in the Methodist Church could learn a few things from other churches.

Today is typically March, blowing, snowing, and cold. First the sun shines, then it is cloudy, but thru everything the wind keeps blowing like a storm is either coming or going.

I hope the above figures helps you to straighten your bank account.
Love Mother

    “You can do it Louie, so keep those grades up there. You will have to concentrate on the French a little more, eh?” Oh how funny! There’s the reference again to “you can do it Louie,” so that guy must have been popular on TV at the time (I included the YouTube clip in a previous comment), and there I was more than 50 years ago working on French. I’m still trying to concentrate on it!

    Had to laugh at the Sunday School turf wars she describes!

      I definitely agree. My grandmother was of that older generation who wrote letters every week to family members and friends. We tend to forget that even though they had telephones, it was expensive to call long distance.
