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
[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.
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.
