Letter from Carsey –  nize one too – saying how much he had enjoyed that week-end. Also said he’d been in Dallas (!) planning the Mexico trip and I was to be quest to either Oaxaca or Acapulco as I chose!  Is he sweet peoples, huh? Went to prayer meeting! Lase Sunday was big S.S. or rather Church Day – Everyone took dinner to the church.  Harry, Katherine, (Mrs. Howard King) and  Mrs. Mulray ate there.  They left early in the afternoon for Arizona to see Lucile. Dr. Walker was my partner for supper. Went walking afterwards.
