Aug 7, 1949

Hello Dick & Dad

Lois is busy filling out birth announcements & feeding the baby.

He was born tuesday afternoon at 2:15PM, while I was flying from St Lucia to Ramey. We named him David Mont. Weighed 7# 8 oz.

Lois stayed in the hospital four days. You know they have a new system now. The mother gets up right away.

Lois had less trouble with David than either K W or Sue. She is feeling fine now, and Dave is getting along OK too.

Kenny & Sue both have a little touch of fever, nothing serious. They are better this evening.

We are all settled down in our new quarters now. We have four bedrooms & three baths. For once we can all sit in the mornings.

[page 3]
Not much news other than the baby. It has been raining quite a lot here lately.

Kenny & Sue received their $5 and want me to thank Dad. It made them happiest because it came from home.

K W has been getting a little work in the evenings baby sitting, and you know what a miser he is. It tickles him to pieces to earn money. He spends

[page 4]
half his time at the swimming pool now and swims like a fish. He plays on the high diving board & swims in the deep end of the pool all of the time. Don’t worry about him as it is a small pool & has two guards. I wouldn’t worry about him anyhow, because he can take care of himself. You almost have to see it to believe it. Sue is swimming a little now too.

Dont plan on it too much but I just might get a trip home in about a month. Just overnight but that wold be nice.

Well Ill write again, perhaps sooner than the last time.

Your son
Bill.
