- Letter from AHP to Peter Pauling and family. [Filed under LP Biographical: (Family Correspondence: Peter Jeffress Pauling), Box #5.044, Folder #44.2]
Dear Julia, dear Peter, dear Thomas, dear Sarah,
I feel very bad about not getting your Christmas box off. Here I have stuffed in the closet several nice things and yet I haven't got to it. I think one reason is that I feel I haven't quite enough to make a really exciting box. Also I'm so dreadfully busy. Julia, Linda left a pair of very nice loafers which she said to send to you. They are very practical, good looking brown walking shoes and I'll include them if you want them.
How are you all? We have 19 pure bred registered polled Herefords! Lovely red curly haired white faced beasts without horns. There will soon be nine calves aborning so we shall have a real herd. Also I've gone horse back riding and it is a trick when the slope is like this [diagram of steep slope] or more nearly like this [diagram of very steep slope] or so it seems! I mean to have my own horse if ever we move up there.
We have all sorts of plans, one even doesn't wait for retirement in ten years but goes right now. That is the one I like to think about the best. What do you think of this rubber stamp? I think the AHP is a bit too prominent and the address not large enough. We had nothing to do with making it. It was ordered by our volunteer helpers of whom we've had a goodly number - some good, some not so good.
Have you heard from Linda? She is having a good time in Davos, I judge. I hope she hasn't broke her neck. She has a good girl to help her with the boys.
Have you had the flu yet? We read about the great epidemic there. We haven't been ill so far this winter - just exhausted! On my birthday (we had driven to the ranch) I went to bed at 5:30 PM after having had a nap and slept until 7:30 AM. You can guess how weary I was. I hope we'll give up some of this activity before long. There are many things I'd like to do so I think I'll never lack for something. I'm having good luck and good fun with my African violets. I like best the first appearance of the big leaves at the base of the large leaf I've stuck in H2O. The Paddy says I must come and look at a movie of him - with sound! We have a movie projector. This is a lecture I think - I'll tell you about it later.
