Dearest folks & sis.:
The area & base are finally getting
dug out from the 3" or more
of ash from the volcano, 80
miles west of Anchorage. The
dust & ash have been horrible
& will be until a good rain
settles it. It is so fine, it seeps
into everything, even locked
suitcases. Our furniture
won't be here for a month
or longer, (glad it wasn't here
[[struck text]:jor]], for the excitement?? &
[rest?]), so we're camping
out in the apt., [apartment], on borrowed
necessities. Your last letter
to the hostess house was
forwarded. Love to all,
Gae Coop
