28: Dear Sis, Ed, Janet, and Renae, 4 May 1965 Greetings from the long lost Marshall Jr. clan! Haven't heard from anyone for a month or so. Figured out that maybe the way to get some mail is to write a letter myself... Last week we got the last of our furniture so things are settling down from the hectic days when we first arrived. I finished installing Barb's clothes washer and dish waster so the chores are mostly automated ... For a resume of how we are: Lisa had another touch of chest congestion but three or four days of dosing with a liquid penicillin (oral) brought her around. The Swedes don't have shots of penicillin for young ones -- they think it's barbaric! ... Lisa is walking and running (more of a fast stagger) all of the time now. She rarely crawls - says "Daddy", book, cookie, Mama, and several words we haven't translated. She gained back all of her weight and more which is remarkable since she was practically | Letter from Bill to Family Back Home | Dear Sis, Ed, Janet, and Renae, 4 May 1965 Greetings from the long lost Marshall Jr. clan! Haven't heard from anyone for a month or so. Figured out that may be the way to get some mail is to write a letter myself ... Last week we got the last of our furniture so things are settling down from the hectic days when we first arrived.

Lisa is walking and running (more of a fast stagger) all of the time now...She rarely crawls -- says "Daddy", book, cookie, Mama, and several words we haven't translated. She gained back all of her weight and more -- which is remarkable since she was practically skin and bones by the time we got her out of the hospital after the pneumonia battle. Billy is almost toilet trained -- a big deal! As to the acquisition of material goods -- Barb got her dining room table at last last week. It has four two foot leaves -- about 11 1/2 feet long -- seats 14 people with all the leaves in -- with 8 chairs -- everything in teak (dark)...
29: The people are pleasant and very nice to Americans in particular as to even know a live American seems to be a status symbol. About 80% of the people under 25 years speak English in the city here of course so it is fairly easy to communicate. Barb's been up to Stockholm twice on shopping trips -- also to escape the captive house free life she leads all week. The trip by train is only 3 hours each way and $9.00 round trip so she and one or two of the Honeywell wives take off at 6:30 am and get back around 10:30 pm. Stockholm is a very pretty city with shops selling goods from all over Europe, Africa, and the Far East as well as Sweden. She plans on seeing the opera there -- which is quite an experience in this part of the world. Next week we start a 6 hr./day Swedish girl to help run the house during the week at $.40 per hour. We couldn't afford the cost in the states but in Europe we live like Europeans!... I had a tour of the SAAB airplane factory. I work in a three man office on the top (6th) floor of an engineering and administrative building... My office window overlooks the runway -- it's like being a spectator at an air show all day -- gets bothersome after awhile with all the sonic booms from the jazzy Swedish fighter jets... Regards from Bill Jr., Barbara, Lori, Billy, Lisa Marshall
