Thu, Jul 17, 1947: the feel of your arm

"From a carefree college student [10 1/2 months ago], sorry that she was already-half through and cherishing her independence gained from a summer of travel, to a girl trying to emerge into grown womanhood & eager to finish and marry the finest man she can find and depend on him the rest of her life. Independence has its point, but I like the feel of your arm around me and the thought that we'll do things together, darling."

--Letter from my mother, Winfield, Kans., to my father, Bloomington, Kans., Thursday, July 17, 1947.
