The card above was postmarked at 11 a.m. on July 21, the same as yesterday's letter. The letter below was written on July 21 after 4 p.m. However, it wasn't postmarked until July 23.
Also, on the back of today's letter, my mother noted that it was "LETTER #1." This would have been the first thing Evelyn would see upon taking it out of the envelope. It would seem, then, that there was also a LETTER #2 sent either in the same envelope or in another envelope mailed the same day. However, at this point in time, it's missing. Oddly, based upon the first paragraph, LETTER #1 appears to have been written after LETTER #2, not before.
Sunday and Monday were considerably warmer than Sat., and today, up until about 4 P.M. was really hot, but right now it is raining. That's why I'm writing another letter.
Yesterday, or rather Friday night, we met a couple of fellows from Detroit and they are staying in Saugatuck all this week too. They live on Drexel and Lakewood. After the dance they took us out to eat and we made plans for swimming on Mon. Well, ~ we did go swimming and am I ever sunburned! I can
Ethel, that girl from the office, is down here now and we've seen her
Well, I guess that's all there is to tell you right now except ~ Don't worry. There is no need to.
P.S. Excuse the x's. I was writing too fast & couldn't stop.
