My Dear Ina and Walter White,
I appreciate your letters very much and also I am glad you sent a letter from Mother Dove. My trip back here from SA was a most interesting one as it was a visit after another on grasshoppers in the different states. Kenneth was here and the office was open but not in good shape. The furniture is not placed yet but 6 to 7 of us work here trying to get the preliminary work under way. Mrs. Hastings arrived yesterday 3 PM and as there were no taxis here (they are on a strike) I met the train with the govt. car and carried Mrs. H. & Miss Anderson & the baggage to their new home. Mrs. H worked today. (I drew one check for the Internal Revenue Office for $26.04 & one to Mother D for $50 today)
I have the last salary check and will get another in a day or two and will send both of them for deposit at San Antonio.
Enclosed you will find statement from the Mass. Mutual Life Ins. Co. of a balance of $341.71 after crediting 78.29 of dividends. I think it would be a good idea to send this & the policy registered and ask that the endorsement be changed to read Paid.
Excuse stationery please.
