Dear Friend Harry: /
I am one of the many ex-students that
have good intentions about writing you and
offering to do something for the school
that has done so much for us. But I have
just put this matter off from month to
month until a lot of water has gone under.
We 'are gradually getting back in Sim-
mons territory. We came to Snyder as pas-
tor the first of December. We are enjoying
our new home and field of service very
much. We feel that we have a fine group of
people to work with in the Snyder Church.
We are having another Simmons man to
move to Snyder. James Polk is moving here
from Childress. Will be definitely located
here next, week with his family.
Rev. Lee Hemphill succeeded me as pas-
tor of the Littlefield Church. Lee comes
from the pastorate at Dayton, Texas. He is
also a Simmons man, was in school a part.
of the time I was there. He began his work
at Littefield Feb. 1.
We will possibly have one student from
our family for you this fall. The youngest
daughter is a student in Wayland now. This
is'her first year there. The oldest daughter
finished Wayland two years ago then mar-
tied. Her husband has surrendered to the
ministry and both of them are now enrolled
I have served as a trustee of Wayland
'for a numberr of years. I will attend the
Pastor's and Laymen's Conference there
1Monday and Tuesday of next week. Will
also have a trustee meeting. But since we
have gotten this close to Abilene, I guess
we will give a more attention to Hardin-
If you are ever dut Snyder way, drop by
and pay us a visit. You have some of our
young people in Simmons: Elsie and Doro-
thy Murphee and Miss LeMond. Some of
the best workers in our church are former
students of Simmons. Miss Louise LeMond
and Miss Rose Marie Clayson are two of
Please make the change in our address
from Littlefield to 1707--27th Street, Sny-,

Just read the neW," Bulletin and realized
I had forgotten to mail a check in response
to your request. .I am sending $5 and you
can apply it where it is needed nost. I don't
know how many "dues" we o'we so it will
probably be needed in that capacity. We
have enjoyed the Bulletin for quite some
time, but have been so unsettled that some-
times we failed to receive it, but usually
Mother and. Father would send it on where
we were at the time. Floyd has been with
Uncle Sam since January, 1941, and the
three babies and I followed him around un-
til he left for foreign service in July, 1942.1
He is a captain in the Ordnance branch of
the service, and is stationed somewhere in
England at present. He is enjoying his work
in the 'supply depot and has made some
friends among the British officers. He says
the British officers think the Americans
are "crazy" but they like them anyway and
gather with them at night at the little
"pub" to sing the peppy American songs.
Floyd has been fortunate so far, an that
he is stationed at the same place with quite
a few officers he-has worked with ever
since he has been in the army, too, so al-
together he feels he has lots to be thankful
The babies and I are staying with my
mother and father for the present. Our old-
est--Floyd, Jr., is just starting to school.
Makes us realize it's been a long time since
we still feel interested in every thing that
we were in school on the "forty acres," but
touches, Hardin-Simmons and always will.
