Family letters: May–August 1974

This week in my family history project:

A letter from Peter preparing for a visit from his parents; a placeholder postcard from Marcy; a note from me to say that two of the foster kids had bullied me once; and a pair of letters from Marcy giving updates on all sorts of topics—the foster kids, the garden, bicycling, vacations, etc.

General life updates from Marcy, on a fairly wide variety of topics.
“How I would love to be typing this[,] so you could read it as well as having it—but ya can’t have everything, I guess.”
