“Dear Jean & Jerry,
Your V-mail of the 18th came last night along with letters from Mom & Milly. Tonight I received a ballot, and a letter from Lucy Wells. She has been overseas over two years now and hopes to go home soon, but, of course she doesn’t know when that will be. I hope I don’t have to stay here longer than that.
A place like Australia would be wonderful compared to this. There’s nothing to do here to break the monotony. A person’s time is taken up, though, so the days go by quite fast. The enemy seems to be kept very busy far away from here so we can be thankful for that.
I saw a good movie the other night- ‘Thousands Cheer’ is the name of it. It is an excellent picture so be sure to see it if you haven’t already. It is filmed in technicolor.
I am writing to Mom, Milly & Susan and to Beany tonight, too. I hope to hear from Beany soon! Keep writing often!
