The Plymouth chapter of the M.A. Society met here tonight. Present was our President C. Sherman, Sec. Sanderson, Adrian and his and Bill Pierce and his wife, and Bill Whiting and his wife.

  1. The observation about not having a letter in a long time is so touching. Most other entries are about facts of things that are, or happened, or done. The observation of something not having happened really stands out as important.

  2. I remember when family members were in Vietnam and there would be weeks without letters..then several would arrive and one’s heart would start beating again…
