A girl in Pleasantville recently played a cruel joke on her mother, and this is how it happened:    She accidently found a love letter that her father had written to her mother in their halcyon days of courtship. She read the letter to her mother, substituting her own name and that of her lover. The mother raved with anger and stamped her foot in disgust, forbidding her daughter having anything to do with a man who would write such sickening nonsensical stuff to a girl. The girl then handed the letter to her mother to read, and the house became suddenly quiet—so quiet the snowflakes falling in the back yard sounded like someone pounding on a tin pan—and the girl still has her company. changes in that time. po to Robling’s for shoes.
