My dear Sweetheart,
It is almost 7 o’clock. I have just returned from the Laakes’. We had a fried chicken dinner which was up to the standard of Mrs. Laake’s dinners. The Gearys (3) and (“L O D”) Miss Palliet were there. I exhibited the Kodak pictures with much pride. I spent part of the morning in touching up the front door facings with ivory paint. I expect to go home and get something accomplished on the thesis msc. Smithie is typing the Shelmire paper. The latter will have additions when we return from Longview & neighboring towns. We plan to leave next Thursday noon. It will probably be Sunday night when we return to Dallas.
I want you to do as you think best, about staying longer in Uvalde. I am anxious to see you and Walter White and I want to be with you some before going to Charleston. It might be wise to drive to Uvalde and leave the car until I return. On the other hand it might be better for you and Walter White if you made the trip by train to Charleston. I dread the drive for you two. Perhaps “Jimmie” can drive the car through for us, that is, if we can get his appointment through. Things are rather indefinite and will remain so until about July 1st. How would it be for me to drive to Uvalde about the 1st and leave the car there. When I return from Charleston, you will want to come to Dallas, won’t you? If not, I could have everything packed now and placed in storage. We could rent the place. It depends upon how you feel about it.
With love to all and with lots and lots for yourself & Walter White,
