“Dear Jean and Jerry,

I am settled now in my new place and as yet I haven’t been given my assignment. It is a rather large place- our quarters are nice and the food is excellent. It is rather stunning to come out of the front lines and start living like this again. There is plenty of manpower available and you can find any type of tradesman available. So we have access to free tailoring, barber, etc.

Write to this new address now as my mail still hasn’t caught me. Maybe your letters to this address will be here before the old.

I’m feeling fine and am certainly glad I can settle down to a decent living again.

I’ll write more in detail as soon as I become better oriented. Best of luck!

Love, Beany”
