- Letter from Joel M. to Nettie and Carl Halpern
Letter from Joel M. and Barbara Halpern to his parents describing their time in Laos. In this letter, Joel M. Halpern describes a trip to a conference in Vientiane to meet with other field representatives. He describes several social events, including a luncheon with the Ambassador, and dinner with 'the Minges'. Upon his return to Louang Phrabang, he witnessed a dedication of a dam, lunching with the Minister of Agriculture afterward. The final page has a hand written note from Barbara with some more personal notes and hellos. The letter describes a Polaroid picture of them in their front yard in Louang Phrabang.
