“Dear J. & J.,
I have arrived safely in Northern Ireland and my first ocean voyage was rather rough but enjoyable. I was one of the few that didn’t get sea sick.
The few glimpses I’ve had of this country aren’t much to tell about. We may get a chance to visit later on. I suppose you are progressing right along now with your new work and Jean is thru with another Xmas rush. Xmas is just another day with us but they will all be doubly celebrated when we return.
I would appreciate some foodstuffs now and then but be sure it is stuff that won’t perish in shipment. A St. Paul paper once in awhile too if you think of it. I may have other requests at times but things are very rare around here.
Let me hear all the news that Cliff sends- I hope you’ve heard form him by now. At present I haven’t much to write about but write as often as you can. I’ll have more interesting news later on.
