Dear David –

Now I am one letter ahead of you. Bill called me yesterday – I didn’t know he had come home – and asked if I had anything to send to you but at that hour I didn’t have time to bake a cake. My Sunday school class came out here last night after the Sunday Evening Lenten service. We are making a survey of all church members (and others) to get a file card on everyone as to what they can do and will do. I was to take all the cards for my class members and I thought it would be easier for me to have them come here than to try to call on each family. There were 11 in attendance so my plan wasn’t as successful as I wanted it to be. I will still have to see the ones who didn’t come last night or contact them by phone.

The opera you gave me for Christmas has just finished playing. I was working here at my desk this afternoon and decided to listen to it. Dad was in the hospital all day yesterday so in the afternoon I listened to it.

We have our itinerary and I am afraid you aren’t going to be too happy about our plans but we decided we could see more in 82 days by going air. We plan to leave here Jan. 10 and return Apr. 1.

I am going to take my car to have it washed, so must be going.
Love Mother

    82 days….wow! I’ll have to see if we can match that, but our next trip will be about 50 days.

    Too bad she didn’t mention the name of the opera.
