St. Louis – May 2, 930 AM.
Will leave here at 215 on the Blue Bonnet (MKT). Had a good session Chicago and the 1st booklet is finished for the printer. It is going to help me keep track of C. americana this year. About 1/2 million copies already ordered by dairy firms. I telephoned Mrs. Fox (nee Susette Fowler) of our class 13 A&M. Had a nice visit. She talks like an old lady. Mr. Fox knows Marshall and said Marshall looked after some business matter for him at Philadelphia.

My dear Ina & Boys,
Had a good visit with the McDonalds at San Antonio and they brought me to the train last night. Mrs. Mc is going to write you and is expecting to see you at San Antonio. Mr. Mc is just getting ready for Pink Boll Worm clean up work in the valley and Mr. Dutton will report for duty soon to assist him. It will last about two months. They have about $600,000 which is about half the estimated needs. We should be able to release a number of our men & pickups to help them. Mr. Mc seemed willing to take my recommendations on any men for temporary transfer and I think the men will be glad to get work for a couple of months.

I started to spend today at Dallas but I am not enthusiastic about airplane travel. I could have left there at 8 tonight & reach Mpls about 10 tomorrow morning. By train & not stopping at Dallas today will reach Mpls 2:50 PM Monday, which is very good time. I have enjoyed the trip and I’ll feel fine on returning to Mpls.

En Route NO to Atlantic City
Dec. 26, 6:30 PM
Made a direct connection at NO and will arrive Phila about 530 Monday AM. The other train gets there about 2-1/2 hours later. This is early but will put me in Atlantic City at 820 instead of 10:40.

The stub for a water bill is enclosed. I am sending a check with other end of it to water board & you should list $1.16 in your check book. Thought I had paid it but found that I had not.
There were only a few people on the SP and tonight this train is not crowded. The 10 o’clock train from here seemed to have a lot of reservations.
Hope Lucien & Avis are visiting with you at home and that all enjoyed the rest of the visit at Uvalde.
With love to the 3 of you,
