From Sunny California.
Los Angeles, Dec. 15, 1930.
Please advance my subscription date as am inclosing
$5.00. Will say we like to get the paper but do not
find much Church or Dorchester news. Even the English
Bench news does not seem to run like it did. Seems
like it does not have the snap it did when W. S. was
younger. Expect am getting older and do not feel like
I did when there 30 years ago. Time seems to slip
away and as I am writing this letter outside, wonder
how the weather is in Iowa. We see more people from
Iowa every year. Looks as if half the state will be
here after awhile. We have people from every state in
the union and lots from Canada, some that own homes
in Florida. They all seem to like California best so
it looks like California will be next to New York
within the next 10 years. We had so much faith that
we started our second store the 13th of June this
year at 2400 W. Santa Barbara Ave. Expect you hear a
lot from out here. There is only one thing that hurts
California. The slump has hit it some and people can
not get work. If there was plenty of work everything
would be O.K.
