I’m happy to hear that you got the nice break of being deferred again but the news of your having ulcers isn’t so good. Be sure to see a reliable doctor and get them cleared up. You know they can become serious if not taken care of. Maybe we had too many parties during our years together in St. Paul- also too much fried foods.
No doubt you don’t feel very good about being rejected but now you two can get a good start in your new married lives. Two from one family is enough anyway. I was just thinking now that you aren’t going into the Army you probably want to make some sort of an agreement or settlement with our car. It may be years before this thing is over and we couldn’t continue our partnership anymore anyway. Let me know of any suggestions you two have about it.
I told Dolores about my plan to buy her ring thru Christ and she agreed that it was a sensible and practical idea so she is going to see Christ about it. She instructed me not to tell a soul about it but I have already told you two. Please don’t mention it to anyone else. Don’t know why she insisted upon this unless it was an irregular way to go about it. I’ll tell her I’ve told you so if she doesn’t mention it don’t talk to her about it.
I was out to the golf course again today but we didn’t play much as it was too hot. This couple we met are sure nice to us. We may go out on a picnic at a lake next week if we get out of camp. They only let 25 per cent of us to leave at once now and we can only go twice a week. You have to have a written pass so they are getting pretty strict. Probably it’s because Columbia has been so over run with soldiers all the time.
Mother told me all about your good times over the holidays. I think she would like to have you kids bring Dolores along some weekend. They should have a nice time on their vacation when they go to see Cliff.
So old Jim was called- he must feel pretty miserable because he dreaded it so. Le me know where he landed if you find out.
What part of town do you plan to live in? I hope I get a chance to get home again to visit you.
Have to prepare for a three day problem which starts tomorrow so my home for the next three days will be out in the Carolina pines!
