I got a letter from Glaydys Gladys & Wilbur to-day & also one from La Verne. I sure was glad to hear from her. She said she was talking to you before she wrote. And that you expected coming up here this weekend. I hope you do. I’m sure counting on it. La Verne said if I came to Cottam, to let her know & they she would come over & see me.
