We had begun to

you went to Port
land to spend the
your three - car
school friends we
didn't expect you
to write but we thought you wuu*u send your ad
dress. Picking you out of that skiing group on Mt.
Hood made everything all right again.
Are you coming home or will you go direct to
school; and if so, what school? I wouldn't be pry
ing into your affairs but your sister Eloise is goin
to be married and she said she’d like you to be
bridesmaid if we could find you. Eloise is your
second sister, you will recall; next to Peggy.
I don t know exactly who Eloise is marrying,
but it s next month. I asked her the man's name
but I didn t catch it and as she was in a hurry X
hesitated about making her repeat it. She said I
would be crazy about him if I should ever know
\ our mother and I hope to meet him before the
wedding, but that is not so important as we probably
will see a great deal of him afterward.
You Affectionate Father.
