Dearest Mother,

    Just a few lines to let you know that I'm feeling fine and hope that you are the same.

   Mother, we just rolled full field packs this morn (Wed.) and at 7:15 we are going to start out on a bivouac. We are going to stay out for 3 days in the woods.

   Mother, don't worry about me because I'll be O.K. When I come back on Sat. I'll try and write a letter and tell you all about the bivouac.

   Well mother, I'll close with lots of love to you, daddy, and the kids.
