Dear David, Bonnie and Debby,

Hope this finds the mumps patient fully recovered. Sorry I did not see to it that you had mumps when you were at home. I suppose you would have avoided them then if you could have.

The wrap around came and fits just right. Glad you could get enough material to make Debby a dress. I bought some knit material and made a dress and jacket. I went back to get enough for a skirt and material was sold sold and the clerk couldn’t find any in any other Ayres store, so will not be able to make skirt. Of all the materials Neualts handle, I could find nothing like the piece that Ayres had.

Have to go to Rochester this week to attend a WSCS Conference Ex meeting. Next week is annual conference and now I don’t know how much time I will have to spend there, but since I am a delegate from Trinity and on a Conference Board, I think I will spend most of next week at Purdue.

Margaret Zell is being married in June and I had an invitation to a shower last week, but couldn’t go. Will plan to attend the next one which will be sometime the first week in June. Her betrothed is a member of Navy Band. I think she met him at Ball State U.

Your stock from the Echlin split—(32 shares) came and since we have your other stocks stored here in our box, I opened the letter and will take the certificate to the bank this afternoon. You have the chance to buy another share by paying ½ the present market value. Information enclosed. Ours didn’t come out that way. We always buy the extra stock when we have a chance. I didn’t think there was any use of sending the stock thru the mail again and then have you send it back.

I went to Houston to the 1970 Assembly. It was quite a large meeting. 10,000 were expected, but I think the attendance was not quite up to that. Our Conference chartered a Purdue plane. We flew out Thurs. afternoon and returned Monday morning.

Love Mother (over)

[page 2] When do you plan to come to Indiana? We will be home after Aug. 12. Our trip to Japan is July 22 to Aug. 12.

One of Wilma Yegerlehner Bell’s daughters will be married June 6. We will probably plan to attend.

Gladys, June 1970

    “Sorry I did not see to it that you had mumps when you were at home.” LOL 🙂

    “material was sold sold” should read “sold out”

    “I went to Houston to the 1970 Assembly.” I admire her get-up-and-go! 🙂

    Wow, Gladys, what a hair-do! Great pic, and a great dress. 🙂
