Transcription:
Answered 8/17/78 7/13
Dear Shirley & Cliff,
Your Mom & Dad are basking in Hawaiian sunshine about now. We took them back to the hotel at 6 o'clock Tues. morning & saw them off at 9. IT was so good to see them again but the time was so short it seemed like we no sooner said hello than it was time to say goodbye. They are talking about coming back to Colorado & Calif. Next year - sure hope they do. They both have such a good sense of humor. The tour started out with a comedy of errors but they just took it in stride. First of all two people on the tour got lost, I guess they never did find them. Then they lost one man's entire luggage & he was so mad he was ready to punch the tour man, he said he was going back to Cleveland - he was a little more than upset. Then the airlines ruined your Mom & Dads garment bag, probably on the conveyor, so they took it for they airlines to replace it. And of course they never got it so we gave them one of ours. Then as the bus took off & was half-way down the block the 2 tour men came out & went running down the middle of the street shouting & waving their arms, it was so funny, like a Laurel & Hardy movie. So they did finally get their bag - a little late but better late than never I guess. I'm not sure I would want to take a trip with a tour group. I don't think my good humor could hold up that well.
   Olive was in surgery for 3-1/2 hrs. yesterday & is doing just fine. I saw her at 4pm & she was still half asleep. When I see her today she will probably be already moved from ICU back to her room. She's taking 6 wks. off work to get really back on her feet again.
   I'm sending you a copy of the land grant certificate & a copy of the Madison Township map. I got the map from the Indiana Historical Society Library but had to wait for a geodetic map from Denver to get the street numbers. I also sent a copy to William & gave him the location of all the towns around it, hoping he will be able to tell us who Geo. Free is or which of our relatives might have lived there. It is so interesting. I hope he can tell us something about it. I hear anything about it I'll let you know.
   Hello to Kelly & Kevin - will write more later.
                                  Love, Marj. & Frank
