Dear Mom and Pop and Bib and Rosemarie,
I received your letters of Aug. 10 and 20 and July 22 today and I was glad to hear from you all.
I didn’t hear anything from Vince yet, but I suppose I will shortly. I am going to write to him as soon as I finish this letter.
I didn’t receive the Times yet, but I guess I will sooner or later.
I get all of the latest news and music from the U.S. over my radio so I know all about the “Bums.”
I am going to town today to try to get a monkey and a couple of parrots. If I can’t get a parrot for you, I will send a monkey.
That’s all folks.
Tell Rosemarie I miss her a lot. xxx
