Have come to the conculsion that . Pope was just trying to scare me.  He was peeved at me just like a schoolboy!  Letter from Dit today saying they met Dad and Jaime in El Paso.  I think last week.  Also a letter from Mrs. Berkness, 4103 Rhodes Circle, Phoenix, in which she gives me two pieces of advice  Never to marry or to marry someone who cares more than I! She is tiring of pure housekeeping when the nickels are having to be squeezed.  I do hope it turns out all right for her – She deserves it surely
