April 24, 1983Dearest Mom and Dad,
A couple things I wanted to cover and I hadn't written you for a long time so I decided to get busy. I just finished typing my paper for New Testament Studies, and hadn't gotten the type writer put away, so I decided to sit down and write a few letters.
Linda Oates was up to see me last Wednesday . . . . it turns out her father and grandparents live in Hebron (near Newark). We're going to tryto go up the weekend of May 13 , if John and X will be available and Linda can get away for the weekend. Would it be possible to get the Chevette that weekend? Or I would take the van, if you insist. ha ha
I have been thinking seriously about taking a year off school to decide whether I really want to finish, and if so what I want to major in. I don't want to waste any more money if I really have no desire to study seriously. Any input you have as far as advice , or otherwise would be greatly appriciated [sic].
This weekend Young Disciples will be going to Icthus on Saturday . . . . We're taking the church bus, leaving at 8:00, and get back sometime late Saturday.
That's about all the news from the college campus; I did get a letter off to Aunt Virginia tonight. Hope the Sound of Music was good. Sorry I couldn't go, but hope you found someone to use the ticket. Tell Grandma hello. Thanks again for the golf balls.
love . . .
