Dear Margie

Received your letter the other day and was very glad to hear from you I received another letter from you just before I left La but was so darn busy moving out her and all that I just didnt get around to answering Im very sorry and wont let it happen any more OK

Did you have a nice time on your vacation You picked a very nice time of the year to go Was much better than in the heat of summer But Ill bet you didnt do a lot of resting Dont blame you though have as much fun as you can

Have been out here going on three weeks now and like it pretty well Its much better than Camp Caiborne anyhow The climate is a lot different though I nearly froze when I first arrived Were up about feet here and thats getting up where the air is thin Is very nice now but Ill bet it really gets cold here in the dead of winter Probably get a lot of snow too I havent seen any snow now for winters so I should enjoy it

There are a lot of mountains here so we are right in the Rockies Some of the mountains have snow caps already and present a very beautiful scene Its a beautiful time of year with the trees and bushes turning color Reminds me of weiner roasts and hayrides back home

Cant say much for the town of Santa Fe as it is very small and there isnt a thing to do Seems I always get stationed near a very small town where there isnt much excitement But thats the army for you

Have you heard from my brother Hes in Germany now and moving right along He has had some interesting experiences which he wont soon forget Guess Mother will write and tell you all about them He was with the first outfit that went into Paris and he said he was sending some things home that he had picked up there Said they really got a wonderful welcome there one that he wont soon forget Could go into detail but I suppose Mother will write you at least she said she intends to

How are your folks Tell then I said "Hi"

Well dont know much else to write now I still find it hard to write a decent letter since I dont like to write it makes it that much harder Guess Ill never get in the groove Its about time for me to hit the hay anyhow so Id better close for now Be good stay sober and write when you can

Your Cousin
