Lake Wallenpaupack Aug. 20, 43
Dear Son & Daughter: We caught 3 Pike and 1 calico Bass yesterday, 3 Pike today, 3 pike 17 in, 1 pike 19, 2 pike 20 in, the best catches of the week. It was very cold last night. I was cold under 4 blankets. We are using the [lend?], could not get a cottage. It was very hot on the lake this afternoon. The lake was very calm this afternoon and the fish would not bite at all. My worms are in bad condition, may not hold out for my vacation. Mother & Dad.

This whimsical (and slightly racy) postcard was tucked inside my copy of Theodora DuBois' Death Is Late to Lunch.
Signed in the front of the book is Jane H. (or L.) Adams. I assume this was Mrs. Fred Adams. I hope for the sake of her 1943 summer vacation she enjoyed fishing like her husband. Or did she spend much of it reading Death Is Late to Lunch? If so, I hope she liked it better than I did!
But most of all I wonder, did the worms hold out?!
