Letter from Home
A letter from an Arkansas Mother to her Son...

Dear Son:

Your Paw has a job. It's the first one he had in
forty-eight years since we have been married. We are a little
better off now, because we have so much money now we don't
know what to do with
it. Paw gets $17.15 every Thursday, so we thought we ought
to do something about fixing up the house.

We sent to Sears & Roebuck for one of those bathrooms you
hear people having in houses. It took a plumber to put it in
shape.

On one side of the bathroom is a great long thing something
like a pig trough, only you get in it and wash all over. Over
on the other side is a little white thing they call a sink
where you
wash your face and hands. But over in the corner we really
got something. This thing, you put one foot in, wash it
clean, then you pull the chain & get fresh water for the
other foot.

Two lids come with the thing. We got no use for them in the
bathroom so I'm using one for the bread board. The other lid
has a hole in it so we use it for a frame for grandfather's
picture.

Sears & Roebuck are real nice people to deal with. They sent
us a roll of paper with the outfit. We can't write on it very
well, so I'm using it to wrap Paw's lunch. Take care of
yourself.

Maw
