My dear Sweetheart,
Yesterday afternoon Mr. Rainwater stayed with me and worked and about four o’clock Mrs. Rainwater came by the office. She typed some things for me which I had overlooked during the rush of the past few days and they were mailed into Washington. A report for the Pest survey bulletin and a news release on screw worms. They had lunch with me at the cafeteria and I went to a movie with them. I took a bath (Sat. night) and went to bed. This morning I found that the Day Light Saving had gone into effect so I’ve been an hour late. Ate breakfast late and a late dinner. Worked from about 11 to 3, saw a parade & then worked from 4:30 to 8:40. Made out my accounts for March and April so that Mitchell can type them tomorrow. I do not get expenses at Atlanta. With the visiting period on the Cushings my accounts amount to $99.
Tomorrow morning Mr. Yeomans reports and after brief instructions during tomorrow and Tuesday he will leave some time Tuesday for San Antonio. Mr. Welker reports tomorrow morning & Bruce comes in the PM. Miss. Claudelle Lewis reported to the Lab at Uvalde on Saturday AM & I sent her an Oath of Office by Air Mail. Had an Air Mail letter from her and I think she has plenty to do.
Mr. Townsend had an operation or expected to, so he will probably be in Washington all week. He has been a hard worker and I’ve depended on him for the office end. On account of payrolls I may not get away as early as I had thought. They have to be signed and only Townsend and I can sign them.
I will have to draw a check on our account tomorrow. I have 40¢ for breakfast tomorrow morning. Made application for an advance for $200 and it should be here by this time. I’ll draw about $10 and by the time it is used, the other should be here. Will get express money orders for convenience.
With lots of love to you and all of our sons,
C&S paper received & will be notarized tomorrow. Am due College Station Saturday and will not leave here until Wednesday PM. Yeomans checked out today. Bruce is here now.
