Hope you do not feel bad that I am so very happy.

Hope you do not feel bad that I am so very happy. You too will feel much better sooner or later. When I am happy I like everybody to be happy with me.

Thanks for the radiogram congratulating on our engagement.

70 Relatives Approve

A newspaper story in the Herald Examiner told the story. When Trudel’s father in Frankfort-on-Main, Germany received the record,

He played it, decided he
liked the young man’s voice and
called in the seventy relatives
to see if they did, too. They
did, and all of them signed the
cablegram that the father sent
to say it was O. K. for them to
be married.
