Dear Dad, Feeling okay ? Marg in Davenport and ate dinner in the Lodge at Blackhawk State Park. Last night we used our fireplace outdoors for the first time & grilled steak for twelve. Now today Robbie has the mumps so he's missing the beginning of school. Happy Birthday ! Love, Pauline.

Dear Grandma, We all had a weiner roast here last night. It is cool this morning & the men have gone out in a boat fishing. We've been fishing & swimming down at the dock. J & J were over on sunday. Bob got back about 7. Wish I had the stroller. We're as far from dock. I'm taking clothes to be washed this am. Davy.
