A birthday letter to Gladys Strite from her father-in-law, John S. Grist
A birthday letter to Gladys Strite from her father-in-law, John S. Grist
Status: Located; Ottawa, Oct. 25, 1929

My Dear Gladys,

I rather hate to do it, but it's no use. I must again remind you that you are another year older. But really, from the snaps just to land, you don't look it! Indeed the years just seem to improve appearance s rather than otherwise. Gee! It must be nice to keep on getting three good meals a day. I'm lucky if I get two now that my girl has left me.

But the year has brought such joy! That darling baby [Franklin James Grist Jr.]. Am taking the pictures to the folks to see. The truck comes today to move Vio's [?] furniture to Windsor. Laura proposes to move hers in right away and stay and keep open house to the friends, But Bryson's poor old mother, left alone in the world now -- I feel sorry for.

Am mailing a pair of gloves today. They will do to drive the car. Love to all.

In haste, Your Father, John S. Grist

Grams is sorting through her life once again and trying to organize the hundreds of boxes of papers and souvenirs of her life. What a job! I thought this article on great-grandpa Strite was a real treasure and am sending it to all the cousins, sons and daughters. Such an ingenious and humble man! Hope you enjoy it.

I am living with Aunt Ginny in this marvelous city and thoroughly enjoying the warm air, sunny days, rolling fog, big-citiness of it all. Am trying to find my niche in the working world. Keep your fingers crossed.

Take care,

Love,
Cousin Julie

MANY BOYS POISONED

TWENTY-SEVEN MEMBERS OF A MINNEAPOLIS CHOIR ARE SERIOUSLY ILL.

THREE EXPECTED TO PERISH

THE RESULT OF EATING TAINTED FOOD BEFORE THE EASTER MORNING SERVICE

Minneapolis, April 4. For several hours Sunday it was feared that a frightful harvest of death among the choir boys of Gethsemane church might follow their eating of a breakfast prepared for them by the women of the church.

As it is, twenty-seven victims of trichinae or ptomaine poisoning are in various stages of illness and fatal results are feared in at least three cases.

The other victims are Franklin Grist

The breakfast was served to the boys in the hall adjoining the church by members of the ladies' guild. This was done because of the early Easter service at the church, which necessitated the boys' presence at an early hour. Some of them had come long distances and partook generously of pork chops, doughnuts, coffee, potatoes in cream and bread and butter.

The potatoes had been cooked the night before and allowed to stand in tin dishes, and many believed that the poisoning was attributed to that cause. However, the physicians who are attending the most serious cases [unreadable]

The boys were stricken at the regular morning service at 10 o'clock, about three hours after their breakfast in the guild hall.
