Handwritten letter from Jay, age 11.
May 22, 1981
Dear Grandma & Grandpa,
I am home from school today because I have a stomach ache. (It could be the flu but I’m not sure.) It is about 11:30 phrase elided by Jed.
In my Little League baseball season, our team is tied for first place. We’ve won five games and lost two. last night, Peter signed Jed and I both up for soccer. My, the seasons
xxxpass quickly! (Actually soccer season doesn’t start until September - they just had an early sign-up.)
I will probably be getting a daily paper route soon. My friend, who has one, says he’s going to quit pretty soon.
Peter just got a really neat toy. It’s kind of like an electric organ execpt it
xis hand held and you can program so it sounds like a flute or violin or some other instruments. Also, you can have ryth xm in the backround (drums and symbols) It has many other funtions I have not learned about yet.
