That guard duty we just had was something I guarded the front and half the side of the "BroadRipple" hotel I had some fun to I halted a captain and st looie together and a private alone about and in the morning Boy I had full authority over my post and really made use of it During the day it was all walking in the hot sun and presenting arms to officiers passing by Im telling you my rifle felt like a cannon on my shoulder during the last shift It looks easy but its really hard work Darling about my parents now Thats not so nice of them that they went through all the stuff and picked every thing out

But anyway dear dont be too hard on them let them haeve some of my things They feel a certain responsibility I guess They always took the best of care of my things and everything Then again they wanted some of the nicer things that I owned for soveniers naturally Please dont be too headstrong dearest I guess they think a little this way too darling theyre afraid that youll give alot of my clothes to Stratton Dearest I dont mind some of the things but dont give away very much After all this way wont last forever and Ill need lots
