Vacation in Cleveland? (Roscoe)

Dear Mother,

Received your air mail letters of May 26, 27, 28 & 29 so you see things are really picking up. Two days on straight with late mail is really something.

Hope Mark got along OK with the tonsil business. He probably won’t be so keen about medical goings on after taking ether. There was one thing you wrote which I didn’t like and that was both boys riding on the bike at the

[page 2] same time. I think that should be discouraged very firmly.

It doesn’t sound as if you have too much of a bank balance but I believe those figures were just before the monthly deposit. At least I don’t believe I would buy any bonds each month unless you can see your way pretty definite.

You mentioned receiving the 150 and said the others hadn’t come yet but surely those have arrived by now.

Of all things there was a USO show here yesterday. All male

[page 3] actors however. It was a short distance from here and I didn’t feel it necessary to attend but a number of the men did and seemed to enjoy same.

I received a letter from Hicky. Yesterday and fully 2/3 of it was censored so I don’t know much of what he wrote – Mostly was “Hello Doc,” and Hicky at the end. I’m going to send it back to him and tell him to be more careful of the details.

Your garden seed never did

[page 4] arrive but maybe it’s just as well since gardening doesn’t seem so profitable. However, I’m going to keep on trying with what I have.

I showed the commanding officer your pictures the other day and he drew out his wife’s picture and said “Doc I believe they would pass for as sisters” and I think he is correct. Poor woman. We plan a vacation for us in Cleveland when we get home. Not Kentland because we are afraid of being bothered by patients – So it’s Cleveland. Spend some time on Lake Erie etc. Then to Reno. No not divorce but a visit there,

Love Daddy
