Sun, Aug 15, 1943: Brooklyn accent

“A regular SC reunion took place down at Grace Church this morning -- Bob Owen and I took in Sunday School.  (Our teacher certainly wasn't a typical SS teacher.  Among his first remarks was this ‘I oughta sock the old lady in the puss fer makin me wear dis coat.’ In spite of his Brooklyn accent and irreverant manner he did a pretty good job of telling us about Moses.)”
-- Letter from my father, Cape Girardeau, Mo., to his family, Bloomington, Kans., Sunday, August 15, 1943.  SC is Southwestern College, Winfield, Kans.
