WWII Cigarette Ad

WWII Cigarette Ad

“Dear Jean and Jerry,

Well, we are getting some winter again. It snowed about six inches and turned colder. We’ll soon warm up tho when we hit Calif. This info isn’t supposed to be passed out but I think we leave between the 15th and 20th and will be about ten miles from Mexico either in Ariz. or Calif. near the border.

There is something I want you to buy for me and I’ll send you the money for it after you send it. I’d like a good pair of polaroid sunglasses and some sort of an air tight or oil skin cigarette case. They tell us our cigarettes will dry fast after the pkge is opened. See what you can find up there.

I sent Dolores’ picture to you today and be sure you safeguard it and put it on display in a good place! That’s an order!

If I forgot before I thank you much for the candy you sent Jean. It was very delicious- so good that I didn’t share it with all the fellows as is usually the custom.

I was sort of surprise to hear about the new adventure Dolores is planning but I think it is a good thing and it will be exciting thing for her as she sounded like she was getting fed up with working and not enough to do to keep her mind occupied.

The pictures of me should be ready this week sometime and will send yours as soon as I get them. I’ve been to Jeff City each weekend and have had good times.

S’all for tonight I guess- we are going to the local cinema tonight and see a movie.

Love,

Beany”
