Dear Margie

Received your letter the other day but Ive been so damn busy I just havent had time to answerHave been work from AM to PM nearly every day You know we changed stations right after I got back from furlough As you can tell from my address we are now at Camp Bonnie Texas Really "deep in the heart of Texas" Its not a bad camp but they have no system here That really makes it tough for me But I guess well get straightened out one of these days Hope so anyhow Yes I had a wonderful time on my furlough It didnt last long enough though The time past awfully fast
