Not Another South Dakota!

Sept 1963
Dear Elena,
I would like to be your pen pal. I have always wanted a pen pal. I am 12 years old and my name is Nancy Brown. I live out in the country on a farm. I am also interested in reading, music and sports. I have one sister and one brother.
I have something to tell you about Jerry my brother. Tuesday he step on a rock when he was running. Now he has a cast on up to his knee. He is 14.
My sister Loretta is 10 years old. We both got to a country school. I am Vice President of our Y.C.L. at school, and my sister is Secretary.
Do you have an interest in animals? If you do I’ll tell how many animals we have. We have 13 milking cows, 20 steers, 60 pigs, 1 dog, 10 cats, and 1 parakeet named Bridgette.
The morning when I was eating some toast my loose tooth fell out and now it feels real funny.
I have to get ready for school now.
Yours Truly
Nancy Brown

P.S. Please write back soon. If you do write back I’ll send you a picture of me and you can send you picture right away. My address is:
Nancy Brown
Rt. 2 Box 160
Milbank, S.D.
