"Dear Grace
So glad to hear from you and sorry to hear you are in the hospital.[...]
We loved having the children visit us. The time passed so fast while they were here. We took them to everyplace we know. I thought both Nancy and Kelly looked good. They brought the best looking clothes. Kelly looks so good in his bermudas which he wore to lounge in. And Nancy brought such pretty things and they fit perfectly. I sent her an outline of where we would take them so they would know what to bring.[...]
After the play we ran into another couple that we me at the convention, so we all went over to Dumonds for coffee. While there, Gene Tierney, the movie star, came in and sat close to us. She is so pretty. [...]
Tomorrow I am going to have my hair done and shop for some pillows and something for little Scot."
