 July 24, 1936 Dear Rose Marie,
It was so nice to hear from you again, and yes, I would love to become pen-pals! Thank you for telling me about your life! Living in San Francisco must be very interesting! I cannot even begin to fathom what crazy things you see there! I must keep your life entertaining! Well, things here in upstate New York are going fairly well for my family. We live near the town of Hyde Park. Coincidently, Hyde Park happens to be the birthplace of President Roosevelt (PBS). We live in a neighborhood which mostly consists of dairy farms. My family does not own our own farm, but instead we rent a plot from the farmer. We live in a cottage that consists of three small bedrooms, a bathroom, and a kitchen with a small dining room table. Outside our home is a small stream and in the summer my brother, and I, and my neighborhood friends go there to cool down from the hot sun. Living in the country is very enjoyable because there is not a lot of noise and it is quite peaceful, although every day I wake up to the sound of cows mooing and rosters crowing! Hyde Park is located in the beautiful Hudson Valley (PBS). During the fall the forest trees turn beautiful shades of reds and oranges, like the forest itself is on fire; it is a truly breathtaking site to see! The Hudson River is also near my house, and you can watch the different boats traveling down the river. From what you told me in your last letter, it sounds that San Francisco is very different from where I live. Please write back when you get this letter because I would love to learn much more about you, your family, and San Francisco! From,

August 18, 1936 Dear Rose Marie,
It’s so nice that we can stay...
