Letter introducing transcription of 1931 diary. Berta Day. July 17, 1981.
July 17, 1981
I had not intended to copy my diary in toto, but got so interested in it I went on. It brought back many memories that have been buried for years. It was a wonderful summer, but I can't believe I was ever that young. I only hope that it helps you at all in whatever it is you are doing.
I hope you will forgive the typing, but is in immeasurably better than my handwriting. Fortunately, I have never had to earn my living typing.
I am so enjoying my little grand-daughters. They are a joy. Sue's sister and nephew are with them at this time—the ones who live in Honolulu.
I would like to hear from you—what your children are all doing, and what you are doing, and hope that you are able to come to this part of California before too long.
