1978, May 31: Letter from Marcy to G&H et al

Marcy writes on a bunch of different topics, including how Jay and Jed are doing, car troubles, considering moving, Proposition 13, Peter’s job, Marcy’s illness, the impending birth of a cousin, and more. “this morning I noticed that the world was kind of polluted, so I cleaned it up and polished it, and now it goes around quite merrily.

We’d really rattle in this huge house.”

1978, October 31: Letter from Marcy to G&H

A Halloween update from Marcy, describing her Japan trip and how things were going in Palo Alto, including lots of flowers and other plants. “We are so fortunate to have this place - we pay 260 for half the house, and one-bedroom apartments start at $300. Near where Peter’s office is you can rent a 2-bedroom apartment with deck and jacuzzi and pool for $2000 a month.”
