Sun, Jan 12, 1947: hitch-hiked

"We are taking it for granted that you got to your destination the day you hitch-hiked to Winfield.  However we'd feel just a little bit better, if we could have words to that effect from you...
"School is going along about as usual with some of the larger boys thinking up more mischief all the time and poorer preparation of their lessons.  But I guess I shouldn't worry, it's their life that is being damaged not mine.  Then on the other hand some are doing such surprisingly good work."

--Letter from my grandmother, Bloomington, Kans., to my father, Winfield, Kans., Sunday, January 12, 1947.
