Dear Lela & Dan-- 1
Terry went away in the bus from Haverstraw today with about 150 draftees. He's to report to Governor's Island for medical and induction if they want him. Probably his eyes will keep him out of anything he'd like--he wants to get into the air force or near it, but has little chance of that. He'll take his two weeks furlough in any case.
I'm writing to tell you that The Eve of St. Mark goes into rehearsal a week from today and will open toward the end of Sept or the beginning of October. Now, I don't know how you'll like it on the stage, but I want to invite you to the N.Y. opening, and for a week or so in these parts at that time. If that's a time when you can get away we'd like to have you. Maybe Ethel and Ralph 2 should come too, and we'll all see something of N.Y. town. It's a long time since we'd done anything together.
The pigs are thriving. We've had more rain [than] this region ever saw in its life. Oceans! I'm enclosing a check for Keith and one for Avery 3-just for spending money. Love--and please come.
