In Muscatine on Monday, June 18, 1951, Dale wrote, “Worked 8 to 4:30. Got to fix my right rear wheel, it drags. Talked to Radke about redistillation. Kopp painted our hall today. Rain in evening. Got Stanley’s clothes ready to send to Perry, Iowa.” Lela (Helen’s sister) and Gene Yates lived in Perry at the time, and I was visiting there. Perry is 39 miles northwest of Des Moines.
