I am well, happy and safe and I hope you all are the same.
I haven’t received any packages yet or letters from Mr. Morgan and I am still waiting.
So Vince is flying now, is he? I’ll bet he is having a lot of fun right now, and I’m glad of it. In the letter I received from him, though, he said he wouldn’t be flying until December and that’s a little way off yet.
These Italians around here can’t understand how we have washing machines back there for only two or three people in a three-room apartment. They think a washing machine would take up a whole room with a lot of equipment and pipes and other miscellany.
Another thing they can’t understand is how everyone back there, rich or poor, is in the same social class. Over here, they say the influential politicians drafted only the poorer class of people for this war.
Well, that’s about all, so I’ll sign off with love and kisses to all,
