Not Babe’s Thanksgiving in 1943, but an edition of ‘The New Yorker’ published the day after this letter.

Dated Nov. 26, 1943; apparently in the same envelope as the previous letter, postmarked Dec. 31.

Dear Folks,

I am well, happy and safe and I hope you all are the same.

Yesterday was Thanksgiving Day and I’ll bet I had just as much to eat as you all did. I had turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, olives, cake, peas, dressing, bread, jam and coffee. That meal was so tempting I just had to go back for seconds. That was one of the best meals I’ve had since I’ve been in the army.

For a change, it didn’t rain today so everyone took the golden opportunity to wash clothes and take a bath. Very refreshing indeed.

As an after-thought, you can put a pipe in that package I mentioned previously. You can send the last pipe I bought and its accessories, if it is still around.

That’s all for now, folks.

Love & Kisses,
