Roger W. Smith, boyhood postcard from New Hampshire


“Dear Mom + Dad / I’m having a ball here. We went to Concord. I haven’t spent much yet so I can spend more later. We may go to Benson’s Animal Farm. _____ foods great. I’m learning much more swimming. / Love, Rog”

sent from Northwod Narrow, NH

A very good friend of mine from Cambridge, MA, Francis Donlan, invited me to stay with his uncle and family for a few days on his uncle’s farm in New Hampshire in the summer of 1958.  Among other things, we helped with farm chores. The main crop was potatoes. We spent a  lot of time in the evenings at a roller skating rink.
