August 14, 1944
Haven’t heard from you in a couple days, so thought I would go ahead and write. Hope everyone is doing all right. I guess by the time you receive this, school will be started off again. I hope everyone will do as good as they did last term.
It only takes nine days to receive your letters now, but I have never received a V-mail letter. I don’t know what is wrong, as I think you told me several weeks ago you sent me one. Maybe it will get here before I leave.
I still like England all right, and the food is getting better each day, that is on the base, because you just can’t get anything to eat in town.
I sure hope I can finish up and get home by Christmas, or the first of the year.
I got a letter from the little Bryant girl, and she was raising all kind of hell about a blonde. I only know the girl, and she said in the letter she wasn’t playing second to anyone (what a laugh). I guess she will learn.
Well I guess I had better cut this, as I will be up early in the morning, and the sleep will come in good.
Love to all,
