Gladys – Mid-February 1969

Letter transcription:

Dear David & Bonnie,

I will be flying from Chicago on United flight 236 at 2 p.m. and scheduled to arrive in Boston at 5:02. Just hope there isn’t a snow storm next Thursday the 27th. Also hope Allegheny gets from here to Chicago on time. I will have about one hour and 45 minutes between flights if Allegheny is on time.

So far this week we have had spring like weather, but snow or rain is in the forecast.

The raccoons came back last night – at least I saw one. I think they have been back before, but last nite was the first itme since last November I had seen one. The fat I had been putting on the bird feeders had been disappearing too fast. The birds eat some but not that much.

Will see you next Thurs.

Love Mother

P.S. I wrote to Irene in Conn. And told her I would be visiting you Feb. 27 to Mar. 3. I hope it is agreeable with you if they decide to come up while I am there. Joyce is in either the Middle-East or Europe now.

    “The raccoons came back last night – at least I saw one.” There is a photo somewhere of Gladys handing food to the raccoons as a few were gathered at the door to the terrace.

    “was the first itme” Should read “time”
