April 22, 1971
Dear David & Bonnie,
Had to get up at 5 this morning to get a ride to airport with a friend. We got the TWA 8:10 to Kansas City and changed planes and were in Wichata by 9:30. It was about 10:30 by the time I was ready for a nap. I am rooming alone, so had no competition from a room mate. It is about 12:30 now so I had a chance to catch up a little.
Yesterday morning a young girl from Indianapolis who had been a J-3 from the old Northwest Conference spoke to 5 of the circles of our W.S.C.S. We met in the church parlour. After the meeting was over I went to the Geneva Center to a meeting that had been called by the Ex. Director of North Ind. Conference. The Division of Christian outreach, all Missionary District Secy’s from the 10 districts and the D.S.’s were also present. Imagine my surprise when I arrived and saw Delmar Byler. He flew back to N.Y. from Indianapolis so saw him again this a.m. He says he is going to come see you sometime.
The convention center called Century 2 is just across the street from this hotel. I am on the 8th floor and have a grand view of the city and Arkansas River. We never did get to Wichata while living in Liberty, but I know in the past 25 or 26 years it has changed much. When I was in Kansas City in 1967 it didn’t
[page 2] look much like what I remembered when we lived close.
I read your letter after I got home yesterday and glad you have made contact with Lea and that she plans to stay with you after the baby comes. I will come when I can get away.
Spring has arrived a little early in W. Laf. and the ravine was beginning to show green when I left. I had noticed around town the red buds beginning to show some color. We are far enough south here, the trees are in full leaf and the red buds are far enough out that the blossoms are about gone from some.
This isn’t the most expensive hotel room I have ever stayed in. There were two sheets of paper and no envelopes. Guess I will have to see what I can find on a desk in the lobby.
Plan to be back home Monday the 26th.
