This is October, and I just gave birth to another beautiful girl. So wedecided to name her Linda because I’m told the name means “pretty” inSpanish.And now my husband will take us to back home with him to be afamily again.
It’s early summer of 1953
and thanks to the Lord, Henry was offered part-time work on campus. He makes test equipment and cares for theElectronics Laboratory and often takes me and the girls along with him.So it’s nice to spend time together and help him box what he finishes.And since we rented a tiny lot above the camp, I also work there toraise our own garden.
My husband’s been offered a summer job at the National AdvisoryCommittee for Aeronautics (NACA) as an engineering trainee. NACAis based at Langley Field in Hampton, Virginia.So the children and I will stay the summer with Mom and Dad.In the meantime, there’s a couple here in the trailer camp that live inHampton. And they graciously invited Henry to stay with them while heworks. They don’t expect him to pay room or board so that he can savehis money for our winter supplies.
