Love (even a kiss or two)

Friday, December 2, 1949

46 West 83rd Street, Apt. 7B
New York City

Dear Art,

This will be a short letter – Shirl’s sister is here, three in this room is crowded, and I’m sleepy anyway.  I just can’t think and write when others talk.

I got another letter from you.  It’s nice to hear you did some artwork.

Instead of getting up at 7:30 tomorrow morning Shirl wants to get up at 9.  Do you know what she does?  The clock’s set for 7:30 so she leaves it that way and sets the
Drawings by
June Anderson.
clock time back half an hour.  She says she’s afraid to trick the alarm – it’s set just right.

It would be wonderful to see you before Christmas vacation, but I won’t plan on anything.  At least we get 2 weeks for Christmas.

Love, (even a kiss or two)


(Tonight – the Methodist Men's Club dinner.)
