“Somewhere in the Pacific
Got your card today and also a letter from Milly. Both were very welcome. I also got your cigarettes from Canada. I passed them around and everyone was quite interested in smoking a Canadian cigarette. I got those postcards from Canada too. I appreciate your sending things, especially your letters, but don’t go to any expense because I have everything I need.
I am glad that Pop liked his jacket. I am sending you a little item for Mother’s Day. Hope you like it.
How is my little Susan? Isn’t she swell. I sure miss her almost more than Milly. She’s talking now so that you can practically understand her. I suppose that she will improve as we go along so that when I get home she will be a regular chatterbox, just like you, Mother. Take good care of her and please don’t spoil her. You know how you are. I won’t be able to live with the kid when I get home, I suppose.
That’s all for now Mom and Pop. I must write a letter to Milly right now and tell her how lonesome I am. Write when you get time,
