Family letters: June–July 1976
Here are the rest of the letters exchanged during the six weeks of Jay’s and my one-month visit to see George and Helen and aunts and uncles and cousins in June and July 1976.
- June 29, 1976
- Helen tells Peter and Marcy how Jed and Jay’s visit is going.
- “[George] is most impressed with these dear grandsons—their thoughtfulness, manners, cleanliness, speech, the gamut.”
- July 5, 1976
- A note from Peter to Jed and Jay, while we were visiting George and Helen.
- “Marcy & I are doing fine, except we miss you a whole lot... if we get too lonely, maybe Marcy will drive up there & get you...”
- July 8, 1976
- Marcy explains the origins of amber, and catches us up on how she and Peter are doing while Jay and I are away.
- “did you tell her that you like to do dishes? You must be helping a lot—Grandma was very pleased in her letter.”
- July 16, 1976
- A note from Peter to Jed and Jay.
- “here is four weeks allowance each and a dollar bonus to share”
- July 28, 1976
- An update from Helen on how Jed and Jay’s visit is going.
- “Do hope you've caught up with jobs that needed doing, gotten some extra rest, and perhaps saved a bit more money than usual these six weeks. An opportunity that may never happen again?”
- Also July 28, 1976
- Marcy wonders how to get Jed and Jay home from the trip to see George and Helen.
- “The 15000 for the plane flight up there just about did us under - now we are back up to zero but not sure what to do.”
