Dear Folks – Few words to let you know its been very cool down here. We got snow on the ground, and it was a -5 last nite. So far we know that we will do Xmas. Its been so darn cold that one hates to leave the fire side. What you all want for Xmas. I imagine you all have been busy at the store. Every year the crowds get bigger and then it all ends so quick. Its a long grind till spring again. But that is the way it is in Indiana. Will drop a line later. O.E.S. meeting Wed. Till then its all the news from the Sentinel. Write.      Me

    Hey, Ashley! I recognize that view. It’s from the east end of the State Office Building, probably the 13th floor.
