Siam: Kenneth's Letter: Nong Khae


Kenneth reads letters to his dad telling him about his trip with Margaret to Bangkok to get the children. He talks about Peggy's complexion, Bill's birthday, the pictures and movies he took, and his first game of golf with Richard W. Post. He also talks about Mr. Alan and the pictures they took together, especially the ones at the Kings palace. Margaret tells the story behind the piece of land where the mission station was.
