It’s getting to be pretty hard to illustrate some of these very short letters. He really, really wants a cigarette lighter.

Dated March 25, 1944; postmarked April 7.

Dear Folks,

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

The weather has been pretty good around here lately, but I see where you are having it pretty rough back there.

Did you get the package I sent home yet?

In case I didn’t tell you, I took some pictures the other day, but I haven’t had them developed yet. I mean the other fellow hasn’t had them developed yet. They were his film and camera.

When you send the cigarette lighter, don’t forget the fluid and plenty of flint.

Love & Kisses,

Babe
