“Dear Jerry,

I’m back in the woods again on our last problem. We are near Hammond, N.C. about 125 miles from our camp. We’ve had good sleeping here because we are amongst a lot of pine trees and we make beds from the dead pine leaves which are pretty soft.

Haven’t had any mail for about four days. We sit around a fire every night and shoot the bull and sing songs. I’m getting my fill of campfires, etc.

Reports are still favorable about our furloughs. I hope I get 15 days because I’ll be traveling nearly five both ways. I suppose you’re busy with your poultry business. I’ll be eating my Thanksgiving dinner under a lone pine tree.

Be sure my golf clubs are put in a dry place so they don’t rust. Did you take my clothes home? If you did, I’ll need a suit, topcoat, etc when I get there. Better see Jim before I get home as I haven’t had a good drink for weeks. I better not plan too much until I really get my leave.

Write soon.

Love, Beany”
