Dear Mom, Dad, and Paulie,

We went to see the circus again yesterday and this time we saw it. It wasn’t much of anything let alone a circus – no tent, no trapeze, no animals, no nuttin except 2 acts of tumblers, a few clown tricks, a singer (how she ever got in a circus, God only knows) and a man who plays music on bells. On the way back my chauffer (the fellow who was pushing me) said, “Let’s go to the movies.” Nachurally, I agreed but neither of us knew what was playing. Of course we didn’t let a little thing like that stop us, so we went and saw a very enjoyable picture, “Our Hearts Were Young and Gay.” I guess you’ve heard about it or the book. A funny thing happened there. As I pushed my buggy up to the ticket desk the fellow in front of me turned and handed me a ticket and said, “Here, take this one – I bought one too many.” Of course I accepted, thanked him and saw the show free.

—–Slight pause for talking to you over the telephone. I guess I told you everything I was going to write before you called. Paulie still sounded like a baby, of course he only said a few words, but they were so high-pitched! Maybe it was the telephone!

I guess that’s all
