Aunt Clara

Jan. 24-1966

Dear David & Bonnie,

I wrote you this a.m. and wouldn’t be writing now, but Aunt Clara passed away today, and I thought you should know. I went to Wilmington this afternoon to get Aunt Ruth. I called Mark & John. John is between semesters now, so he is coming home tomorrow and [will] go with us to C.C. Wed. to the funeral. Incidentally John has to have 4 wisdom teeth pulled soon. I didn’t give him much encouragement

1966-01-24-gry-p-2-3[page 2] about the after effects. In reading your letter again, it is the Magic Flute you want and not Figaro—or would want Figaro also—it is a beautiful opera.

Dad is having trouble with the leased car and had to drive my car this a.m.—and he is at the hospital on a baby case. Garnette is going to give me a lift this afternoon—to the bank and dentist office (I think I cracked a tooth last week) if John doesn’t get home in time for me to use his car.

1966-01-24-gry-p-4[page 3] Last night when I talked to Mark the stock hadn’t made an appearance yet, but is due any time now. They are really enjoying the record player.

Did we tell you we have tickets to Hello, Dolly—May 5, and the name of the picture we mentioned is “Cat Balleau” with Jane Fonda and Lee Marvin, plus a few others. It was around last fall and I would guess you have missed it unless it returns to the small neighborhood theatres.

Love Mother

[page 4] Please see you Prof. about the trip to Holy Land and let me know.
