Mail Call: 23 October 1934 (George)

Letter from George Potter in Sargent, MO to Mary Potter in St. Louis, who was still working on a temporary basis and living with George's sister Dora and her husband Walt Bremerkamp in E. St. Louis.  The temp job is across the river in St. Louis itself and so carfare eats into her pay.

Johnny cake and fresh milk from Betty the cow for supper....with the promise of sorghum syrup for cakes.

Note: "Lucile and Em" are Emma Jane Potter Parker (1878-1953), George's sister,
and her daughter Lucille Parker Quested (1897-1968) back in Erie County, PA.

Note:  "Brooks" is neighbor Arch Brooks.
