Sun, Mar 22, 1942: Barbara’s birthday.

"Well to-day is Barbara's birthday and we all went to Katherine’s for dinner.  Flo, Everett and Lois were there and Mr. and Mrs. John Smith and Mrs. Alley.  So with Katherine's family there was quite a houseful.  We had a nice dinner.  Of course I baked Barbara a birthday cake so we took it along and had it for dinner too.  It was pink angelfood with blue and pink frosting."
--Letter from my grandmother, Bloomington, Kans., to my father, Winfield, Kans., Sunday, March 22, 1942.  My father’s sister, Barbara, turned 14 that day.  Katherine and Flo were my grandmother's sisters.
