My Dear Son,

…I guess you read of old Grandpa Meyers' death. Leslie came for Papa to go over as his Grandpa was dying. They have no idea where he got the poison.… Mr. Meyers is not feeling very well again. He worked two or three days so had to lay off again.…

Let us know what Mall said about that article and all the news. Not be long till your Birthday, soon be 23. Time is sure flying fast. Do you ever meet that Prof. Does he try to make up.…

Gornal hasn't worked for about a month. He seems scared to go out. I believe he says the engines are in such bad condition. Well Papa can't kick about engines for they have the best of everything. I think this run is better than the turnrounds.

…Wishing you success in your exams.

Your loving Mother
