Mail Call: 4 October 1934 (Gladys)

Letter from Gladys Potter to her daughter Mary in St. Louis dated 4 October 1934.

Gladys has rescued an old red coat which George had given to the dogs and traded it to a neighbor for a bushel of wheat.  Grape picking by the creek then leads to poison oak and hands like a "horny toad."

Note:  Mrs. B is neighbor Arch Brooks' wife Celestine Claudia Brooks; the Mary who gets the dogs' coat is Arch Brook's daughter "Lizzie"

Note:  Dora is George's sister in E. St. Louis, married to Walt Bremerkamp
