‘As for Writing to Any Civilians in Italy, It Is Definitely Out’

Dated Dec. 4, 1944; postmarked (apparently) Dec. 12, 1944.

Dear Folks,

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

I received a few letters from you all and one from, Gene together with three packages. One contained the peaches, one spaghetti and the other was a fruit cake from Bullards.

Don’t worry about that $3.75, there is nothing you can do about it. You will receive it all sooner or later, but I will check on it anyway. And as I already told you, I will raise your allotment as soon as I get discharged from this hospital.

As for writing to any civilians in Italy, it is definitely out. We are not allowed to do so. Therefore, I don’t see how I shall get in touch with them.

I know that you don’t get enough mail from me, but sometimes, it seems as though something goes wrong with your mail, too, for I don’t get it regularly.

Well that’s all for now so I’ll have to sign off.

Love & kisses,
