*Brother John’s Letters to Grandma

letter from John to grandma

January 3, 1963

Dear Grandma,

Thank you very much for the wonderful printing press.  It can be used for so many things, cards, invitations, notices.  I am starting a newspaper, too, and as soon as I get an issue out, I will send one to you.  I am going to call it the “Mukluck Telegraph.”  (Not original!)  I can’t think up any good names myself!  In it is going to be news of home, school, etc.  I will get a lot of use, fun, and experience from it, and I already have.  You couldn’t have chosen a better gift.

We all had a wonderful Christmas.  Mother and Dad went out on New Year’s Eve, and had lots of fun.  We had a Christmas play at school.  Everyone enjoyed it.

We just got back to school from Christmas vacation.  This is our second day back in school.

A belated Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!  Please write soon.  Love, John.

P.S.  More news will be in the newly formed newspaper, “The Mukluck Telegraph!”
