December 3, 1975

This is a letter that my grandpa received after making a donation to a senior citizen home for (I believe) widows of veterans. Warning, explicit language.


Dear Sir,

          My name is Mildred Barnes. I am 72 years old, and I have been a patient here for 8 years.
          I am writing to thank you for your generous donation which let me buy a radio for my bedside. My room-mate Hattie Jones, has had a radio for 4 years, but she played it so low I could never hear it. She is 79 years old.
          You have no idea how much a little thing like a radio can mean to a person in my condition. It certainly helps to pass the lonely hours. I have few friends and get no mail.
          Three days ago Hattie dropped her radio on the floor and it won't play anymore. She asked me to turn my radio up so she could hear it and I told her to go fuck herself. Thank you again.

                                  Yours truly,
                                        Mildred Barnes

Well I don't know about you but that cracked me up! One of the many gems my grandma has hiding in her house hahah.
