Friday I ordered one of the best Victor bass voice records from the Victor agents here. The bass is Gorgoza4, Emma Eames5' Spanish husband, and the song, "La Paloma"6 is the national song of Mexico7; it's a great favorite of mine. "La Paloma" means "the dove", and it is a song that a prisoner sings to a dove that flys by his window. Most of it is very gay, as the prisoner tells the dove what a good time he means to have when he gets out of jail.
If the record doesn't arrive in good shape, or if they d don't send you the right one, please let me know. Next time you are in Red Cloud2, drop in at the Victor place8 and make them play you the Julia Culp9 record of "Oh, Rest in the Lord"10 they have it, and it's beautiful.With love to you all Willa Mr. William Andrews 1 Bladen3 Nebraska RED CLOUD NEBR.2 730 P 10 OCT [missing]
