Letters from Marcy #28: 17 November 1967

A brief note from about four months into Marcy’s pregnancy.


Friday Morning (11/17/67)


Just a quick note to thank you for the quick response (the telegram was dated Nov. 14, 9 a.m, which is when it arrived in Ft Bragg, but due to ineptitudes here, did not recieve it till the next day) & all that—you’ll be repaid soon. The people are off to Canada in their yellow-orange-red-fuschia school-bus-converted-to-house (it is very fine; like a big, lumbering trailer, all compact & neat & lovely)

Had to up to Ft Bragg to get the telegram, & passed some store windows in a section of town I never get near usually, so wasn’t used to looking at a pregnant woman reflected back at me—I really look awfully pregnant, but experienced friends tell me I ain’t even started yet—making and inheriting maternity clothes, which is fun—there’s kind of a community of such things, and little baby clothes, that get taken good care of and handed around to people who need them, then pass them on again.

Off to school—big day: the bi-weekly visit of the bookmobile!

Love from Peter—

& me too
