Tuesday Night 7/9-1940
My dear Ina,
After closing time today Mr. Thompson and I visited the Central Warehouse for electric appliances. I purchased a GE electric range, a Thor washer, a Thor Ironer (short roll), a floor lamp and a bridge lamp at a very good cash price. The articles are standard and I feel quite confident about the quality of the merchandise. I hope you will like them. They are to be shipped by freight to Panama City and will probably not arrive until we reach there. The bridge lamp or bed side lamp has a new feature of a small light in the base or a night light. I won’t try to describe the different pieces. I have not located the sectional cases as yet but will see if I can get an attractive buy.
Shipping containers through today with almost a par day, but Dr. Drake says we have reached the peak in shipping. Dr. Dickison was here yesterday PM until last night. I may go to Mpls about Saturday. I am not sure yet, as Mr. Rainwater is in the field.
