Draft Board Letter

1963-09-20-gry-p-1Letter transcription:

[Wright 533 – handwritten by David]

Dr. R.S. Yegerlehner
Physician and Surgeon
103 North Second Street
Kentland, Indiana

Sept. 20, 1963

Dear David –

A letter came for you from Draft Board. We opened it – just in case it was of an urgent nature. It is just a form, but you had better take care of it at once.

I sent you a note and $5.00 for your birthday. Hope you received it OK.

The weather has cooled of some. I hope it is nice tomorrow for the movers (Mark & Shirley).

Did you see Sperry closing for Thurs.? Just in case you didn’t it was over 17 (17 3/8) so that should make you feel a little more wealthy. Do you want to sell?

Love Mother

    “cooled of” should read “cooled off”

    I have no memory (scary) of anything mentioned in this letter, e.g., the form from the draft board, $5 for my birthday, the Sperry stock…well, I do remember having Sperry stock. But I don’t recall watching it so closely.
