letter from Cindy to Grandma, written after her 7th birthday
July 11, 1960
I have a bunny. Its name is Snow White.
Johns goat is growing Big. [She crossed out “Its name is Whitey.]
Daddy is clearing more land. Daddys clearing is on top of the hill in front of the house.
I had a nice Birthday. I got a Roscoe, the many footed Lion. I got some pretty slippers. I got a pretty Bracelit and a Eskimo Doll. Tiny Tears my doll had her Birthday too. She had a cake too. She had a candle and Tiny Tears blew it out all by herself.
We got a little puppy and we named him Tuffy. Tuffy ate up all the gumdrops.
I hope I can write you a letter soon. Love, Cynthia
