Letter From Home

Sharing the existence of a letter from Dotty’s step-mom Lou provided me with the opportunity for me to write three (now four) posts and hear from you about general mail delivery, falling behind schedule during your vacations, and the desire to live somewhere where you have vacationed.  I enjoy hearing from each and everyone of you.

In the post In the Box #1, I shared the envelope that contained Lou’s letter to Dotty, and in this post, I will share with you the short letter that was inside.

This letter was sent back to Bridgeport, which is how it ended up with all the postcards and letters that Dotty sent home.

Nov. 4-29

Dear Dorothy,

       Your last rec’d and all others before we are still wondering if all of ours have been rec’d?

       Did not hurry this as you said you did not expect to reach Houston as soon as you thought at first however do hope this is not in late especially on account of enclosed money-order do let us hear if you receive it O.K. ?

       Glad to hear your good weather is holding out + also the car + glad to hear all are well + having such a fine time.

       We are about as usual + the weather is extremely hot the house is too hot with the furnace going 80+° now!

       Pa says (“Be a ____ ______ ________ ” etc)

       Lots of love to yourself + best wishes for all from (we us + Co.)

Dad + Lou

P. S – No we do no know of any one for whom we wish you to get s.- Lou.

P. P. S. – All booklets rec’d too. – so.

In case you missed the Facebook post, or don’t follow me on Facebook, I wanted to let you all know that I will be tweaking the blogging schedule slightly.  Starting on April 1st, I will be posting biweekly on Mondays and Thursdays.

Thanks everyone!
