My Dearest John,
This will be another hurried note as the mail man may come in 15 or 20 minutes. But this letter came today or yesterday and I wanted to get it forwarded to you. [They lived on the gifts of individuals; most of them came in the mail.] Perhaps I shouldn’t have opened it, but most such letters have been for the correspondent so I never know just what to do. [??] While being so nervy [smile] I kept the $35 check and put it in the bank this morning. Soon the milk bill will need to be paid.
Spent $25 on groceries this morning! But I got three large chucks to put in the deep freeze for steaks.
The carrier is early, so I’ll close.
Love from us all,
