11/5/74Dear Mom, Dad, and Mary Virginia,
Hi! As you can see we got your letter. [Family letter of 11/1/74 on the reverse side of this letter.] The day after you left I started working 3rd shift (11-7) at Miann Plastics. It gives us a pretty hectic schedule but so far it seems to be going well. They make plastic shoe heels and soles, also quite a few of the platform type. I wax the molds and spray them with a "Pam" type spray as the molds move by me on the conveyor belt. Starting pay $2.07/hr after 15 days $2.17/hr and then $2.27 after 30 days. [We needed $ to pay someone with more expertise than me to help with the interior of the new house.]
Got a letter from John today - he will be arriving on Saturday afternoon. Also got a letter from Roger B. said they enjoyed your visit and how they like their new house, etc.
Nothing new on the library addition yet. X is to make another speech tomorrow night.
Kuman is doing well.
I voted earlier this afternoon. There is quite a strong independent candidate for governor so the results will be interesting. I'll be able to hear them while I work tonight.
Time is running out!
Love, Catherine & X
