Dallas trip con’t.-We went to our friend’s house stayed a while and left. Before going back to town we went sightseeing in the Park where they have a beautiful fairground. It looks like a miniature of the N.Y. World’s Fair and is open every year for a state fair. We saw the museum of Natural History (which was open) and the Cotton Bowl (Football Field). They also have a nice amusement park but we didn’t have time. We left, ate (Chinese again) caught a trolley to the highway and hitched a ride to Waco. It started to rain so we saw the new thin man movie, and caught a bus for Gatesville. I want to go back next week because Alec Templeton is appearing there with the Houston Symphony. But I have exactly 83¢ to my name. Could I have some money before this weekend so I could go? I should get paid by the first but that’s too late.
