A Book

Dear David and Bonnie –

This a.m. I drove to Joliet and spent the day at the hospital with Aunt Ruth and am going to stay here (Wilmington) tomorrow and maybe next day – it all depends on developments.

Uncle Earl is still in Intensive Care. Aunt Ruth says he doesn’t know her and has had to be fed thru his veins. However today he was able to take a little milk and juice. The Dr. who is taking care of Uncle Earl doesn’t say too much except his slow progress doesn’t look too good.

John had to go to Syracuse & Ithaca, N.Y., and plans to return home Thurs. He said he would try to call you if possible while he is in N.Y. He has to go to Urbana Friday. He seemed interested in the record club you mentioned if he doesn’t have to buy records regularly.

I bought a book for you and Bonnie today – it is “Our Wedding and Married Life.” I will list the gifts and fill in what other data possible but some of it will have to be filled in by Bonnie or by you. It is quite a book and I hope you like it. Aunt Ruth thought it was quite nice.

It is 9:30 and I am getting sleepy – not that I have done much today but sit, but I started out early this morning. Left home at 8 a.m.

Love Mother

    “He seemed interested in the record club you mentioned if he doesn’t have to buy records regularly.” I think that used to be the drawback of book and record clubs. Also, they would ship stuff to you that you didn’t want.

    Wow, I don’t remember that wedding book at all. Is that a photo of it that you took? As we know, Gladys was big on those books. She sounds like a researcher: “fill in what other data possible” 🙂
