In 1954 when I was 6 years old my parents and I moved to Jordan and lived there for two years.
My father worked for the Bureau of Land Management in New Mexico and was given the opportunity to go to Jordan with the "Point 4" Organization. The organization was there to teach local farmers, herders and other agrigarians modern agricultural techniques, calculate the number of goats and fat tailed sheep you can run on an acre of desert, build earthen dams and clean out the odd Roman cysterns. While there my mother wrote these letters home to her family about a few of their trips.
They were letters typed on an old typewriter like the ones you see in old black and white movies about newspapers. She used 5 carbon papers, one for each sister and her mother which explains why she didn't just backspace and correct a mistype. The paper is over 60 years old so the copies are not the best but are mostly readable.
