Air Mail Letter addressed to Mr. Harold E. Carlson

June 12, 1942
It is just 9:30 Sat. morning but I have to send you a note telling you we are all right. Alvin slept until quarter to 8 this morning for which I was very grateful. I didn't realize how tired I was but we both slept well.
We are going to have another scorching day. Already the water is pouring down Alvin’s face like tears. He seems very happy this morning tho. Altho he has been wondering just where his daddy is. The air cooler is apparently working very well, altho it is a little to soon to say much about it. Reed was very tired this morning & is in the bedroom now sleeping.
I hope your trip was not too tiresome, and that you arrived in good time. After you left I was a little worried for fear you would miss your bus. Give my love to everyone, both in Salt Lake, and in Pleasant Grove, and know that I am thinking of you, and sending my love to help you every minute. Kiss Mother for Alvin & me and we will write again soon. Take care of yourself, and don’t let yourself become too tired.
With all our love,
Laura and Alvin
[Harold had returned to Utah for the funeral of his father, Alvin Emanuel Carlson]
