How are you? I know this seems a trivial thing to ask but with this Great Depression and all it is nice to have something kind in your life. Speaking of kind have you seen the new movies that are coming out? Carl and me went to go see The Wizard of Oz this week. It only cost 5 cents for each of us to get in and we also go some popcorn and other snacks for 5 cents as well.
The movie we went to see was pretty good it definitely cheered us up for a bit. If you ever want to go see one I would recommend either the Wizard of Oz or Gone with the Wind both have been made recently and both are in this new format color!! Can you believe it? I didn’t want to believe it until halfway through the Wizard of Oz it turned to color. It is a really cool new invention and I feel it is going to become very popular.
Do you still have a job? Carl and me are luckily we both got to keep our jobs. I work as a librarian and nurse. Not very popular jobs but it gets us some money, which we desperately need in these times. Carl is a bartender. It may surprise you but people still have enough money to go out and buy books and beer. We don’t make that much money so most of what we earn goes into our bills or saving up for a later time. But if we both have 5 cents and we need a little pick me up we usually go to a movie.
I have seen a ton of new pictures in the news. It seems that new camera’s are making the news a lot better as they are clearer and are able to show things we were not able to see before. We are planning on buying a new camera soon so that we can take some pictures of our family to show you. Do you have a camera? They are becoming pretty popular now, as many people want to get pictures of their family to either keep or send to others.
I hope that you and Cassandra have a lot of pictures to show us. I will be sending you some new pictures of us soon so that you can see how much we have changed. I am hoping to use the camera and then sell it for money someday to get some extra money so that we can buy some things we need like new clothes or some new shoes.
The movie theatres are one of the cooler places in town as they are one of the few places that have air conditioning. Lots of people go to see movies just to get out of the heat and spend some time indoors. Many people in our town are working on construction sites, as that is some of the work that men can get.
Do you have any new building projects in your town? We have a few like they are building a new library and a few new buildings like schools. We are excited because we are hoping it will give some people some jobs so that they can get enough money to scrape by. Many people are losing their houses due to being in to much debt. We are fortunate because we have already paid for our house so all we have to worry about is having to many bills and having to sell some of our things.
I hope that the people in your town are fairing better than ours. Many are just packing up and leaving for a new life somewhere more profitable. The movies have made the west out to be some grand adventure but I have a feeling that they are just exaggerations and that the people that do leave will be living a life much harder than the one they have here. Many movies have shown us how the world is changing and we are hoping that we will get out of this depression soon so that the people of this country can have a better life than the one many are living at the moment.
Please send our love to the people we have forgotten to send letters to. We have been very busy here and have not had much time to write. I am just writing you this letter because you are my brother and you live so far away. I am hoping that we can stay in contact so that we do not become even more distant. Carl says to tell you that he heard that the President is doing something to help people get more money. I am hoping he is right, as many desperately need it.
I hope that you will contact me soon.
Your loving sister,
