Description A letter from Mrs. A. L. Robinson, 6312 Connecticut Avenue, to her son Ensign James Marshall Robinson, U.S.S. Concord, written on May 8, 1927.

In the letter Mrs. Robinson discusses the candy and cards she has recieved from Marshall and the rest of her children for Mother's Day. However, she hasn't gotten anything from Puss yet as it hasn't arrived on time. She describes how there have been many days since she has come home from the hospital that she wishes for the heat of the tropics. Mrs. Robinson and Ginnie have bought their tickets to sail back to Haiti on the 12th of July. They will sail on the Ancon, which will only take six days. Mrs. Robinson recounts how she fell in the driveway and ended up with bruised knees, a skinned nose, a bump on her forehead and a torn hat.

See item # 500.23.08a for the envelope.
