Mission Camp, Bethany WV c1938

Speculative history leads me to believe that Jean went to Bethany WV for a summer mission camp after the two years at Jackson's Mill in Weston WV.  Bethany is much closer to New Cumberland, being about 30 miles south via WV-2 and WV-67 and now that Jean is in high school the time on a college campus may have helped her narrow her college choices.  Since we have the option of looking into her future we know she chose to go to college in Morgantown at WVU.

Dear Rev. McDevitt*, 
Jane and I are having a very good time but we do miss you this year.  Rev. Inglis is here and he's a scream.  Will see you Sunday we hope.  –Jean

*Note: Mom told me it was spelled McDevitt, but pronounced McDivitt.  I am unable to confirm this.
