Babe seems a little put out by something his parents had heard. Did they get bad information suggesting he should be discharged after 18 months in the service? "I don't care who told you about or where you read it why. Don't believe it."
Plus: "I saw the picture 'Cover Girl' the other night, and I thought it was pretty good. I also saw 'Bathing Beauty,' which also was a fair picture."
Basically, Babe's acknowledging receipt of some letters from home--and that's about it.
A letter dated one year after Babe enlisted in the army.
Plus, Babe laments his inability to find anyplace to swim--and he remembers "the old times" at Crooked Path.
