Saturday Night.

My Dear Little Girl,

Yours of Thurs. night was received at noon today. Pretty good service Sam’s postal boys are giving. Also received another Uvalde News today. This makes two since you left.

I am posting the manuscript to Dr. White tonight. He expects to get it into the June issue. Have also made out 5 reports for Dr. Hall telling him where they have some worm problems. Will also post them tonight. Looks as though I’ll have a clean slate for Monday. Will try and get some goat work started Monday.

Alvis phoned this afternoon. Mrs. Pettit invited me for a noon dinner tomorrow.

Everybody asks about you. I am always telling someone about my wife. Mrs. Brundrett comes to the lab sometimes. Haven’t seen Mrs. Laake. She has so much company now that I’ll go a little later. Mr. Laake is OK now. Mr. Palliet is with them. He is having Dr. Shelmire to treat a skin trouble for him.

The kittens are coming fine. The meat and milk is working wonders. They will soon be cats.

Dr. & Mrs. Roark expect to come down after the first of July. They wanted to rent their apartment to the Bishopps, but the Bishopps don’t know whether they are going to sell their home or not. Bish may go to Wash. by himself.

I love you Sweetheart and you don’t know how often I think of you. I have your photo on my desk.

Time to eat & I will have to take a bath too. This is Sat. nite.

With all my love,

Love to Everybody

On the back of the envelope, in Ina’s handwriting, is “Mr. W.E. Dove, 5113-1/2 Miller’s Court, Dallas, Texas.” Google Street View shows an apartment complex there now.

Friday Night 9/26*.

My Dear Sweetheart,

The dream was interesting. If you should find a church social when we go to see my folks, it is almost certain that you will meet everybody and then some more. Since I have been away there are quite a few strangers to me who have moved there.

September 25, 1925 (Walter)

If Thelma and Reitha keep bringing cats to your home perhaps they will have to start a new series of names when they have used the hours of the day. Maybe it would be well to start on the days of the week. I think Friday would be such a lovely name for a cat. If he had this name, it would be well not to feed him meat, unless it was a K.K.K. Kat**.

My landlady is curious to know when I am going down the state. She is planning to leave soon and will be gone all winter. I’ll store everything except what I take with me, and will continue the work here after I have returned. It is so interesting that I do not like to leave it.

With a real sweet goodnight, and with all my love, I am,

Always your

* I’m assuming he means Friday, 25 September 1925.
** I don’t get it either. If any readers understand this joke please post a comment.
