My Dearest Daughters

In 1958 my mother got married and moved across the country. These are the letters written to her, mainly by her mother, between 1958 and 1960, as well as other artifacts from my family's past. Others in the series are in my del.icio.us file.

When I was going through my mother's things I found this little printed program from her wedding day!

Printed in 1955 by the Leaflet Missal Company, I wonder if this is the same company today?

The words on page 4 are a little blurry but they say, "and if true love and an unselfish spirit of perfect sacrafice guide your every action, you can expect the greatest measure of earthly happiness that can be allotted to man in this trail of tears."   My dad apparently didn't get a copy.

Throughout the little missal are the English and then the Latin words - interesting to me because of how the mass is going to change BACK closer to what they were in the 1950s!!  So what is old, is new again.
