---especi3113 from Eois Joan

0, go, little boat,
All newly afloat,
With your white sail spread to the breeze;
Ride, ride with the tide,
Till the river grows wide
And the waters tum back to the seas.

Flow, flow, little stream
From the land of my dream,
Little stream all agleam as you run,
For the rose and the blue
Of my skies are in you,
And in you are my stats and my sun.

Blow, blow, little breeze
Set the chimes of the trees
All aring with the music you bring.
From heartland and highland
From harpland and skyland,
The land where the angels sing.

Grow, grow, little flower,
Blend of sunshine and shower,
Thou wild little child of the field;
What wealth could I hold
Like this lapful of gold,
What gift like the breath thou dost yield?

Glow, glow, little star!
We who wander afar
Need a candle of love on the road.
Burn, burn till we learn
That our footsteps must turn
To the manger—then lead us to God!

—Robert F teeman.

45 Cleveland Street
Arlington, Moss.
Saturday, June 24, 1944

Dear David (and Mabel) —

SinCe I wrote Mabel a work or two sgo;~and I owe you a letter,
David;»I am addressing this first to you - but am mailing it
first to Mabel m assuming that she will send it on to you in
Wastington state, wherever you may be. I realize that by today
you sxpectcd to be leaving Oregon, and I had intended answaring
your nico lottcr oarlisr, so that you would receive it at Bond,
before todayfi But so it goos¢.99,alifs spins on so quickly that
tomorrow is here beforo we realize,

I Was certainly delighted a as was also Irv and his a to receive
your nice picture, David, and we shall surely cherish it, It was
so good to soc your smiling door face, and vs are so grateful that
you includodus in those who should have a Copy° It sure does look
good, and n are so glad you are happy in the task you have set out
to dofi Since we must has this miserable wsr, I am at least glad
that some of the boys are fortunate to have a shepherd like you to
help them over some of the rough places, and point the way upwarde

I Can't remember just where I left off in my last chronicles of
events here with us” I think I may have writtcn habol one or two
shorter notes by hand, of which I haven't a carbon copy, and the

last cepy I have was the long letter written in March, in which I
chlosod on notorine E‘t 19m ours I‘ve writion éincc than c although
not half ofton enough; I am siraide You both know, however, h.w ‘ime
can flyg I was so glad to hear that babel will probably be oble to
be with you in Washinoton state, provided you expect to stay there
any length of time, and I do hope you can, and that you will like it.
She must have boon quits a help and comfort to her folks these past
months, but it surely must have been hard for both of you to bo
separated by such a distance, I don‘t thing I could "take it" to

be so for sway from my Irv, But woncvcr know wtmt we can do until

we have to - and one of those days we shall probably hove to be
separated for awhile anyway until we meet ”on the other side”;-
However, let's hope it is a long way off - and until then, why worry:
I am really feeling very goad and am afraid I‘ll live to be 108.

Irv has some trouble with his old colitis whiclxis of long standing,
and whenever he gets a bit ovortirod, it troubles him a and he goes
‘on a "bland diet" until it clears ups As I probably wrote you, in
’Fobruary he started to work at Harvard in the Rodiation Lab.(War Work}
doing drafting, and for the past month or so he as boon elevated to
work in the Patent Dept, using his drafting experience, plus some of
iis law training (fiou know he graduated from N.E.Law SchOol in 3.9.20r
the year he was married the first time, but because he had a good

job then with Stone& Webster, he never took his bar exams — nor did
be over use his training in low¢_,..,tho arrival of his family kept
him busy making money enuf to support them, so he never dared to
”start at the bottom of the ladder" in the law game which would have
been neco.ssry. He realizes now that if he had some so, he might
have boon a good patent lawyer by now, with a good income....but

that is the pricc one pays 33% and who knows, perhaps it was all
meant to be, anyway...,¢.,My what a parenthesis, and how I ramble,a..)
To get back to his Harvard job in the Patent Dept, he has not yet

decided that he likes it as well as his other work. It means sitting


 at his desk all day long, composing the ”briefs” Covering the
dosmiptions,why's and wherefor's, of any new "discoveriss" that
owns along in the course of the day‘s work n in order that the
dovsrnmont may patent them, if it seems desirable, I hope he is
going to like it better as he goes along, He has an office of hks
won, and two girls (secretsriosj shom) working for him, and with
him, He eXpsCts in tims it may mean more money too, but narvsrd is
known to be poor pay, and he had to start working for loss than he
had received even at the Polaroid Co. Dsspito coiling pri :s on
some things, some say that the Costing of living has incres.‘
nearly 50% - and from the way a $10 bill goes, when I go to

grOCsry store - with not much to show for it, I can well believe it.
Except for a redingote coat (o7.95) to cover up my old dresses -

and a pair of Ground Gripper shoes, I haven't bought a stitch of
clothing, nor has Irv e we don‘t do any entertaining, nor do we go
anywhere - Our hobby seams to be dsvcl0ping and printing some of
the few snaps we have taken - when we can get films - and we enjoy
doing that. I wonder if I ever sent you any of the rocsnt ones,
Perhaps I can sncloss one with this letter. to show you how fat I stil
am (I am still 158 lbs. ”stripped" - so I haven’t rained any back
since I lost 15 sfter my operation),


Brownie wired us this week (colloctfi; no had been assigned

"near Dick" and that he will first vi " " umbus (to seenis girl
friend a the same one he had at colls are hopeful that he

may be staying in tho Mass. or Conn, , ,. ‘ awhile at least. But
we haven't the details yet - which he - eventually, He is

busy winding up affairs in Plattsburg a i assume he will bemmhnsign

on Tuesday, the 27th. So perhaps he'll be home for a few days end

of next neck, It will be good to see him. I think I must have written
you that Irv and I visited him bcfors May 30th «‘13 took 4 days for it
spending one dsy'lgning and one day returning - and 2 days with the in
and it was so good to be with him and sss him, We were afraid he
might be sent off to some distant point without a chance to get home,
Wuich was the likely possibility at the time, he having volunteered
and been acoeptsd (physically) for submarine sorvica. However, we
don't know if ho has passed all the other requirements for that type
of service, Frankly, I don't like it = gives me clsustrophobia sVen
to think of it - but he has often mentioned wanting it, and it is his
life to choose with and for s so I only hope that he will not regret
it, They say that before they accept them for this type of work, they
must prove, through many tssts, that they can take it - as they have '
to be good, to begin with, Goodness knows what wrecks it makes of
them a but let Us hope this mess will be over soon, ‘BinCc DiCk is
down at Wend's Hole, and likes it, — it may be that he and Brownie
will have some opoortunitios to see each other, if Brownie is to be
stationed near him. We are wondering SUst whoro that Will be.

Leave it to Brownie to keep us guessing and hanging in mid-air: the
rascal, Vertene will be a Senior next yssr, and we are look-
ing into the possibility of her attending Mass, School of Art sftsr
she graduates, ‘ She has now taken a job for the summer near home —

in ligqstt‘s drug store at the corner of Lake St. and Mass, Ave.,

and likes it very much, She has to work every other Sunday - 48
hoursper week - but she hopes to earn enough to buy a bike, and have
some spending money - and she can Come home for meals, and has no
carfsre or long earrides in town, which is nice, It is good exper-
ience, meeting the public a and learning details, which she needs,

We are at present much concerned with the welfare of our nephew,
David, Jr, _ who went over to England in February, and who is now
perhaps in the French invasion, or about to go, for he was in

the §outh of“England tbs last we heard, but no word since June 6th.


 - a -

Mabel, I think I must hove written you since I started to go in to
Dr.”cCorison's office one or two afternoons a week, to help them

out a little ?? If not, I might say that I began doing that - in
April, I think - some weeks I work a total of 2 or 3 whole days -
lasx week I only felt like going in there one afternoon - I seldom
give them a whole day at at time - for I am taking things quite easy
and not rushing, It gives me a few dollars spending money which is
nice to have, Of course, getting #3 for an afternoon means I leave
the house at 12 and get home at 6 - but out of the no I pay 60¢ tax,
20¢ Cerfsre, and 20¢ for an egg and milk a leaving o2 net for six
hours of my time - which isn‘t much, but better than nothing, And
I don‘t have much responsibility — I know the work that needs to be
done, and don't nxxn go in if I don't feel up to it, which is not

a bed arrangement, I am for the most part setting up a osrd record
file - for use again in the fall when things begin to get busy. I
know he wants me then full time - but I am not sure what I shall do.

Well, by now, poor David (if he has waded through thus for) will be
pretty tired out with my wordy letter which.doesn't say much~° - but
that's me all over,habel, That is what Comes of living such an
unevent‘el existencee However, I have reed- some good books
recently. The other day I went out to Hyde Park to hove luncheon

Park High School (Martin Olson - he used to no to Cambridge church
many years ago) and his wife (3 Crane -6f the Crane paper family}
is also an old friend, 'We talked so fast and furiously, to make
up for the long time he hadn‘t seen esch other - I was all tired out
