Lois received a prescient letter today from her father. She had told her parents she was saving all their letters and they, in turn, were saving hers: “I just happened to think about your incoming mail since you said you are saving it all,” he wrote. “I better be careful with my letters. You better censor ‘em yourself whenever you think of it… And you’d better destroy this warning.” Well, reader, she didn’t and neither did he. Why? I have no idea but I’m grateful to have these. Anyway, you might look through your papers. Is there anything you don’t want your children or grandchildren to read in seventy or so years? Destroy it!
