Dear Mother: –

I thought that I would write you a few lines to tell you that we are all well and getting along all right. We’d like to hear how you are getting along once in awhile.

Hope you are all well

    Remember having picnics in that pavilion above Pogue’s Run; my mother took me on the number 11 bus to the swings and slides as a kid in Brookside Park…
