a few minutes, so I'll have to hurry with this - I'm sorry I haven't gotten out to see U. Philip and Aunt Sue any more - I'd like to have seen U. Wistar, too - Vaughan is another one - At Mary Liz's party he asked me to call him when I was at Dorie's - some night - because he wanted to come up and visit with us - I wanted to do that - but that night just didn't happen that way - Write me about your July 4th holiday - Have you found something special to do? Have you and Paple fished any more? None of the Va. or W. Va. boys went home for the 4th, did they? I'll bet you'll get about 4 letters on Wednesday on account of the holidays - You don't appreciate them like that - Goodbye now - I'll write from "God's Country" - as Mother calls it - I love you - Woman We've been married six months yesterday - did you remember?
