Dear Mother and Dad

Received your letter today and was waiting for it some time Also glad to hear that you have received my letters

will write every chance I get But want to be able to write any more until I receive some stamps I had to borrow the one to send the letters Did you receive letters about underwear pills and money Tell Dad to send it soon Also to tell Bill OBrien answer in regard to cigarettes soon

How is Dad and his new job getting along I hope he will prove successful The weather here has been extremely hot And we go hiking every day and when we return we are all good and wet with preparation The reason is we wear woollen shirt and woollen uniform So send underwear so I can have enough to take a bath every day and put on dry and wash out and have another

Take a short break with our 1 minute survey, simple questions that are an enjoyable distraction.

next day We have been hiking and miles every morning We start every morning at and came back at or But it sure is doing us all good

Glad to hear that Ollie is able to go back to work How is Ray Is he coming home soon About that swimming suit give it away I dont want it Clyde
