This is a letter my mother sent to her mother that concerns the death of my mother’s father and his will —
postmarked November 21, 1962
— Just got back from Anchorage – left here at 6:00 A.M. and spent day with David at Bill’s room where ironed etc.
Just read your letter – by now, you’ve received my note telling you I received fund.
Mother – forget it. I trust Howard explicitly. Leave it alone! Now, I mean it.
** My father left us out of the will!! Entirely – [grandmother sent returned the letter with the word “purposely” written in here]
Howard sent me $2,5000 from C and C’s bank account and he never had to. It’s actually his $. He can change the will and I wouldn’t want to. [Linda note: Sounds like her father left money to mother’s brother but not to her – interesting]
I’m pleased but it’s going to help but haven’t decided yet how – none of it will be frivolously spent. $500 already paid lumber bill.
Will write later but don’t fuss with lawyer etc. Howard will get mad and that will end that. He said, in a certain way he may send more, don’t spoil it.
Mother he means well. He was generous and kind to send it.
Forget the past – please.
Thanks anyways. I’ll send your letter concerning alimony to Howard and the $ is yours.
