Dear Dick & Dad:
Ill answer your letter because soon at Craig, Ill be too busy – and I do want to thank you for sending on the Guns.- We received the next letter too – telling about disregarding the telephone bill.
I called Herman the other evening to tell him to bring me a new 25 H.P. Our Johnson is running fine but remote controls dont work so well on it. And the whole family has been water skiing. It takes a real good motor.
I suppose that you have finished fixing the boat by now,
and are ready to go north. I think Herman & Ruth are coming down in June. It will be hot, but not so much as July & August.
Went fishing today I we caught a flounder & a sea bass – had them for dinner tonite and they were good. We also caught about 20 hard tails – a fish like a mackerel. Only the fight harder than a bass. They weigh about 1 1/2 pounds.
When you come down this fall it will be fine weather and good fishing too. Well, Ill close now.- See you later
