Thank you for your card. It was nice to see you and my sisters last month. Vera is doing fine; the baby is due in just two months. I am certain it will be a boy. We’re going to call him Jimmy. Vera wants to have him baptized by the priest at St. Joan of Arc’s church. Don’t tell mother.
I am looking for a job in town–in Laramie–so that the baby can be in better surroundings. I’m having a rough time finding anything, so we are still living in the camp, and I’m still putting in a full days work hauling logs. I promise to keep looking for work and to make you proud of me, Grandma. I know I’ve goofed up sometimes, but now that I am a family man, I plan to do better.
Thank you for the money you sent.
Love, your reformed grandson,
