I received your Friday letter today.
I wrote the following letter out over the weekend and am typing it out now. I did send out seven or eight pages last night but it came back for lack of proper postage. It needed one more 23 cent stamp. But you know this since you will probably get two envelopes on the same day.
I have typed the two enclosed posts directly without first using the carbon paper and memory. I did have a handwritten draft to follow and think it came out pretty well.
I am going to switch to the jagged right margin since it will make corrections easier. The typewriter actually uses proportional spaces to make the words fit on the line and going back up to correct an error is difficult to line up.
The main reason to type this way is it will save the time it takes to reprint out each page. Also while I can edit work I put into the memory, it would be more efficient to use a pencil draft to make those corrections before I type them. The spell checker should catch most of the errors and hopefully I will not do too many word swaps.
I did notice that on the 'Hole in my tooth' post I typed "cruched" instead of crunched. If I get too many uncorrectable errors I will go back to typing out the draft first.
Although this letter so far is typed without any draft, I will not as a rule type this way since even if the words are spelled right, without the draft to go by there are likely to be unconnected words.
