TO BE FILED: MARY KEELING'S LETTER OF JUNE 27, 1944.
Hello, and how are you? Again this year instead of a birthday card, I'm sending you your birthday wishes in this letter. So happy birthday, and lots of luck from Bobby, Red & I. It's hotter than the devil here & Bobby is pulling at me. He is now straddling my back. I'm sitting at Anita's house, and she is ironing. We just had a piece of water melon and I was thinking of you. If you will send me a request I'll be glad to send you some nuts for a birthday gift. How do you like your new camping grounds? I hope this war is over soon, so that we can have a nice swimming party, golf, bowling, and everything else at the same time. Boy we'd have to go to bed for a week.
We went to St. Louis for our vacation and had a grand time. No doubt you know that Aunty Clara waited for us to come over on the way back, but our train pulled in at 6 P.M. and the one to Milwaukee left at 6:20, so we couldn't stop over. Well, lots of love. And take care of yourself and hurry home.
Mary, Red & Bobby
