A little tiff early in their marriage. Phone number 2811 was Sumner’s law office. You had to tell the operator.
This note looks like it was written at 8:15 PM. I’m wondering if Sumner wrote it before dashing out for a pint Miriam’s favorite ice-cream, a toffee ice cream with toffee-centered chocolate-covered candy bar bits, which may have been what they called Butter Brickle. It was off-limits for us kids, but we’d scrape remnants out of the little tub in the morning. I’m thinking it tasted of today’s Heath bars?
