Letter from Erline to LeGrand, November 12, 1940
Nov. 12, 1940
My dearest LeGrand,
How are you tonite? I am fine. Only a little tired as it is eleven c'clock and I have just finished my mother's dress. It looks nice in my estimation. I hope she likes it.
It was just yesterday since you left, but it seems like ages. I wish you could be here. I miss you.
You just as well come for Thanksgiving if you can and then stay the weekend, and we will go to Dayton Sunday Nov. 24th. When you come you might as well bring some of your lessons to do, in case I have to work.
How did you find your folks? Did you rustle [?] grave yard [shift] or not?
When your picture is put in the paper be sure and save me one if you can. I'd sure like one.
LeGrand, I am proud of you. You are so considerate of others. You are so good to me. It's not the big things that count, but the little things that make life worthwhile.
I'm glad we went to Conference. I'm very happy when we an go to church together. I like church when you are there.
I'm tired now and must go to bed. I can't write sense with the Sandman stealing in.
Goodnite Sweetheart and pleasant dreams and may all the good things in life keep coming your way.
Goodnite to a swell fellow. The best there is I think.
