Here's one of two letters I found in an envelope
postmarked Oct 13, 1970. One letter is to my great grandmother and the other is to my mother. Neither letter has a date on them.

This letter must have been written when I was in
fifth grade (1968) because I reference the fact
that it is my best report card and I recall that
was when I was in fifth grade at El Rancho Verde
in Hayward, CA.

up in the snow it was very fun,. I hope
I will be seeing you soon because I
