Marcy talks about various trips and plans and life updates. “But today we got up too early for [a kid who was visiting] & he was tired, and ’Quin fell off an airplane wing (an old Navy fighter, painted blue and sealed and set in a huge sandpit and made safe for kid climbers) and I had to sit and judge the relative merits of their respective grouchinesses.”
Addendum to the previous letter, thanking George and Helen for gifts and mentioning that a couple of friends got married.
Postcard from Marcy talking briefly about Peter’s job hunt.
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. I put a special shine on Alaska for you, and wiped the international date lihe particularly well. I had always thought God made the world, and was a little surprised to find it said Rand McNally down in the Pacific Ocean.”
In which Peter gets a new job, programming for Oroweat! …also, “A condition of the job is that we move to the Palo Alto / Menlo Park area, so we’ll be busy packing & moving in the next 2 weeks.”
Marcy talks about packing to move, and various other news. “Jed won the American Legion Award (a medal & certificate) for an essay on Americanism […] How’s that for naches?”
Peter sends sympathies to George after (I think) some kind of car accident. “I phoned in a prayer that your suffering be relieved […] & your life filled with Light.”
