“Dear Wards and Dyes,
Still plugging along here. Had a little fever again and fungus in my ear, but it seems to have cleared up. Received Elaine’s letter a short time ago. Thanks.
Wish I had something I could write about. There is plenty going on in this area as you have read in the papers, but nothing I can write about.
Milly and Susan are fine. I’d certainly like to see all of you again, but there seems to be no prospect of such a happening. Just have to stick it out I guess.
