Update on John’s Arrival

July 15, 1964

Dear David and Bonnie:

I had my letter to you ready to mail when yours came today. I received a cable from John that he would be arriving in N.Y. July 19. Cable came after I had sealed your letter and since you made two requests thought I should write another letter to tell you I mailed the pillows this afternoon. I have two enlargements – one from my collection and one from Alma’s – of the exit from the chapel. I will send the ones I have and have more made for us.

The T.V. set is on and I have been listening to the nomination and seconding speeches. Looks like Barry is in. You never can tell – he may win in Nov.

Dad is at the hospital for surgery. I have finally finished the waxing and buffing. I haven’t decided yet what to do about going to School of Missions. Since John was delayed almost a week in leaving I thought he wouldn’t be arriving home before the 25th but since he will be arriving in N.Y. the 19th I have no idea now as to when he intends to arrive in Chicago. Will be able to tell you better

1964-07-15-gry-2-p-2[page 2] about what I do after I hear from John again. He is supposed to call me when he gets to N.Y.

I was able to get rid of one of the old worn out pianos in the church basement today – I mean the piano tuner hauled it away. I secured 3 other tuning jobs for the tuner here. If word gets around he may have to make another trip back. Seems tuners are scarce.

Love Mother

P.S. Congratulations on Bonnie’s success in getting a contract.

    ” I mailed the pillows this afternoon” LOL I had her mail pillows to us? 🙂

    “You never can tell – he may win in Nov.” Didn’t quite work out that way. I remember writing them a long letter explaining my view that Goldwater was bad news.

    Bonnie’s contract…can’t recall what that might have been.
