Marj - “On Sound Ground?” - Feb. 15, 1953

Marj is busy as a bee running innumerable errands and completing countless chores this weekend. But she also has time to play tennis, go out the St. Louis symphony with friends, and spend quality time with Bob’s parents and his brother Carl. Towards the end of the letter, she mentions she was surprised by Bob’s valentine. Maybe their relationship isn’t on as firm ground as one would think. She fittingly concludes with a symphony themed post-script joke.
