With a wedding date at least tentatively agreed on, Leon and Elly needed to kick their planning for the actual event into full swing — they needed to have everything good to go in less than three months! Naturally, Leon saw this as an excellent excuse for them to meet again in Pittsburgh:
I have just checked with the depot here and they say the Baltimore and Ohio line will run an excursion on April 26th. Please check with your B. & O. depot and tell me the news I shall be breathlessly awaiting. Or will you come by bus again, darling? I can leave here Sat. at about 11:45 p.m. and arrive there at 7:23. Then I’d have to leave at 10:45 (same as last time) but once more we’d have the “extra” hours together.
As to the finance-angle, it’s worth it to me to get a nice, warm, room — with private bath and close to the depot — to pay the extra dough. And I love to register, “respectably”, Mr. and Mrs. L. Rosenberg which we will soon be forever.
I assume you’ll agree, so please come with a “full report” on your ideas and plans (I shall do likewise) in order that we may not “waste” too much time discussing everything we have to decide upon. …
I shall leave all practical questions (where, which rabbi, how much, etc.) entirely in your most capable hands and shall limit myself to practising “I do’s” faithfully a half hour each day. That way the division of work will be equal don’t you?
