About motherhood….

Thursday, Sept. 2, 1943

p.14_Sept. 2, 1943The war news today could hardly have been better, short of a German surrender: The Russians wiped out some 35,000 Nazis at Taganrog. Plus restrictions on slaughtering were going to be lifted. That would mean more meat for the Home Front markets. Yet Roosevelt advisor Harry Hopkins was predicting that the war would go on for at least two more years — maybe 5 “if we lose Russia.” And Newsweek was advertising a special Labor Day weekend edition reviewing and analyzing “4 Years of War.” Meanwhile, my grandmother wrote to Lois about motherhood: “This is the most important part in your life. I hope you will make a good job of it.” Not sure whether that counts as encouragement!
