Pauline tells Martha about a program at the courthouse to mourn President Roosevelt's death. Sonny Boy has written her about an abscessed widsom tooth. She discusses family affairs, including visits from furloughed relatives and her brother, who has recently been promoted. She says her sister has ordered a hot water heater and an electric stove. She's hoping to get the same, but it worried about having enough money for all of it.
