Monday 8 p.m.
I love you to-night too. It is such a gorgeous night – one of the lovely, beautiful Minn. spring nights – and you know what those are; especially do we know on the St. Croix; for there never was a lovelier spot. It holds so many dear memories of happy times together.
Aud. and I just came back from a hike down by the creek, as usual. We picked some very fragrant wild plum blossoms, and have them for our centerpiece. After the birthday party yesterday, I really had a house to clean and then too, we did our laundry today.
Honey, thanks a million for two more of your letters. I was hoping so that I would receive some today, and everyday I wait and hope for the same thing. Some day, though, I can look for you to come and how wonderful that day will be. Hmmmmm! Staying out so late that you can’t even find the camp when you get back! I’m surprized! What were you doing?? Oh Honey – only teasing – rec’d a letter from Mrs. Thomas of Brawley today. She says they have a lot of flowers in bloom in the court. She said she rented our house to the Christian Church minister 30 min. after we left. She inquired about you and said Mr. Thomas always got such a kick out of hearing you! Bye now.
