Dear all. We got to DC Friday at 3:30 Visited with Sis stayed a night at Vernon’s. One night at Marj + Eds. 2 nights at motel and Today we were at Mt. Vernon. This is a really nice place to see just like he had it when he lived here. I mean Washington. The crops are wonderful through Illinois + Indiana nothing but corn, beans, alfalfa + clover on either side the highway as far as your eyes could see most places. Well Elizabeth has sweet corn + all trimmings ready for supper. I hope you are all fine as this leaves us. Mom
