Letter from Walter C. Scott to Ruth Fontaine Scott

Albany, Ky
Dec. 13, 1946
Dear Ma:

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.

Write soon,
W. C.
