I am well, happy and safe and I hope you all are the same.
I received a couple of birthday cards from Bib and Rosemarie and although they’re a little late, they are still welcome.
I didn’t receive any packages or letters from Vince or Mr. Morgan yet, but I’m still sweating them out.
You gave me the name of a fellow whom you said was in my outfit, but you neglected to tell me what part of the outfit. I don’t know whether you mean my division, regiment, or my company. Please let me know.
Well, that’s the end of this communique, so I’ll close now.
Love & Kisses,
P.S. Just as I finished writing the first part of this letter and put it in its envelope, who should pay me a visit but the mailman with a letter from Vince. That was the first letter I received from him and I certainly was happy to hear from him.
He thought I was in France when I was back in Africa so I had to write him a letter to set him straight.
Well, this is really the end of the document, so I’ll sign off once again with love to all,
