10 a.m. Sunday Dear Boozie - What a grand letter! I'm surely glad you couldn't sleep Friday night, because I enjoyed those 3 pages written on the back - Now I feel mighty good this morning - Pop called about 9 and told Ellis there was a letter from Richmond for me down there - So Ellis jumped into his clothes and said he'd go get it for me right away - When he got back he said it was nothing but a bill from M & R! Of course I was expecting it, and I got so excited my hand started shaking - that's the truth - it's still wobbling a little - I would think I should have gotten over that by now, wouldn't you? And you know me - after I read it I had to come right upstairs and write to you again!
