Edna Greet Letter to Marjorie Smith
July 22, 1951
Dear Sis and Marjorie:
Maybe if I play with the typewriter a while I can get some letters ready to go in the morning. Hope you don't mind. We are having quite changeable weather, with a few really warm days -- up in the nineties. Then we have a shower and it turns cool; quite cool some times. Had showers night before last and yesterday. Cloudy today, but no rain. The garden is finally growing pretty good. Are using peas and young beets and tops, and put about 8 quarts of spinach in the freezer Friday.
Wyoma had the Dorcas club up at her house last Thursday, after having to postpone it a couple of times, once because of rain, and next because it conflicted with a dental clinic being held in Worland for school children, for some kind of fluoride treatment. They have to take them again several times, I understand.
It rained quite hard yesterday morning, then the sun shone a
while but toward evening the clouds came up again, and we didn't think any one
would come to the party, but Emer Curtis and his
family came from Worland, and then Archie and Pauline (Harvard) came. They
brought Thelma (Waln, Pauline's sister) and Hazel (Wells ?) with them. Clayton and Alden (Curtis) had spent the
night before up at Bert's, and they and Bert and Grace and Marion came, so with
all of us and
Well, Earl came in, and by the time he left it was time to get supper, and now it is bedtime. He says it rained hard up there yesterday evening.
We got your letter this morning - Marjorie. John got it out of the P.O. last night. Hope you got the letter with your Navy letter in it, too.
Yes, Mary is still home. Mrs. Bonine got tired of waiting for her I guess, and got some-one else. Mrs. Faussett was wanting some-one, and Mary wants to go over sometime this week and see her. I would be happy to have her home the rest of the summer. We haven't got the front room painted yet. The moths have been rather bad, but are about gone now.
Next morning---- The Jolly Neighbors had their meeting at Godfreys last Wednesday, and I went with Marie. Grace Egbert (Brooks Egbert's daughter, married O'Neil) -- Whatever her name is now - and her husband and baby have been visiting with Brooks and Eula, and she had her movie camera at club and took a lot of pictures. They took a lot of pictures at our branding, and also at the rodeo the 4th. She showed them at club, and said they would show them and some others at the community hall in Ten Sleep the next evening for anyone who wanted to see them. We went, and there was a nice little crowd out. They had some good pictures, especially of the rodeo. Too many hurt. They got a perfect picture of the Furnicase boy's accident. The horse fell on him in such a way that he (the horse) couldn't get up, but just laid there until the men took hold of his legs and rolled him off of the boy. The last I heard was that he had never regained consciousness. They thought there was a blood clot on the brain, and were going to operate, but if he lives it is doubtful if he will be normal. Too bad.
You should have seen the kids here and their 'rodeo'
Well, it is evening again, and supper is ready. John and
George took a few head of cattle to the mountain this morning. Bonnie and Rodney
had to go to Worland for another dental treatment, so Frank took them down to Breedens (neighbors about half way from the ranch to Ten
Sleep) to go with their kids. Mary Denny takes a school but load from Ten
Sleep, or at least she did last week.
Marie got home last night. She and Neil both have bad colds, and I think Neil is going to Ten Sleep pretty soon for some medicine or something. Frank is ready for supper, so guess I'd better quite.
Am so glad you have good prospects of getting a house in
Guam (Arthur Smith was in the US Navy and was stationed on
Take good care of yourself and children.
Lots of love-

Asked Dad, Thursday Jan. 27, 2011, at dinner about their
wedding. He could not remember who the minister was but that it was the
Methodist minister as the Adventist minister had not been ordained yet. Fred
asked him if his name was Goff. He wasn't sure but maybe. He does not know
where their wedding certificate is or if they had a wedding book.
