Sun. nite / Feb. 25th 1945 / Dear Mary: Well it looks like it is / getting to be a habit, writting, bt as I / don't know about the yarn yet, just thought / I would send you a picture of the bag / to see if you like it, I guess the / pattern will be here some time. I don't / know what size it will be, but if it / is not big enough, thought maybe I / could enlarge on it. Show bessie & Lillie / the picture, & see if they like it. I / have got their hats started, but had to / shop & make 3 Or. baby bootees. / Pearl & Billy have gone to Church tonite, / so Mama & I are by our lonesome. I have / not dressed today, just took my bath, & / put on my P.Js. My back has hurt / so bad yesterday & today too. / It has been so pretty & warm here today / but I think it rained every day this / week till yesterday. / I guess you remember Louise McCombs. She / has been working in Baltimore, & her / Mother wanted her to come home, & stay , / I think her Mother wishes now that she / had let her stay, for she brought a / girl home with her, & they are about / to run Mrs. McCombs crazy. The girl don't / have a penny (not one) & they have to / pay their fares to the show, & they / want to go 3 or 4 times a week, & / Louise is out of money now, so it is give / to both now. Betty White went back to / Washington last Mon. Don't know how / long she will stay. / Mary I was about to for get to tell / you, but I want you to get me a baby / bottle & nipple (like you use) when you / can, & I will pay you for it.
