Letter from Walter C. Scott to Ruth Fontaine Scott
Dec. 13, 1946
Please don't expect any Christmas presents from me other than the tree, which I have not sent yet.
Am going to get married about X'mas!!?
The girl, Delene Brown, Clinton County, is tall, brunette, and 23. She is a farm girl, Methodist, and a Democrat I think. To be exact she would pan for J.V.'s twin at 23. Wear about the same size shoe I think.
This all seems like a dream to me but when I wake up it is real, so am just giving you advance notice. Delene has an engagement ring anyway.
This is some good news I have been hoping to tell you for quite a while.
