My dearest Ruthy:
It is about noon and I am taking this opportunity of writing you before lunch which
will probably be the last letter sent from here. We leave for Galveston tomorrow at 6:30 P.
M. arriving at Houston in the morning and Galveston about noon.
Envelope samples arrived this morning, which does not give me much time to do
any business with them. I tried 2 jobbers however and some business may result.
Am glad you are feeling more cheerful than on Sunday evening and as you say,
some day we’ll motor somewhere to celebrate our “Steenth” wedding anniversary and
probably have more fun than B & M [Bob and Martha (Gomer) Gray] had at Atlantic City.
We may have a grown son for chauffeur and big daughter for companions, a situation that
M. will never reach.
There is nothing to tell you dearest worth relating. I am heartily tired of this dirty old
city and with you so far away, I am more than tired of it. Read the rest of this entry »
