Just a few lines to let you know that I'm feeling fine and hoping that this letter finds you all
in the best of health.
Mother, today I received your most welcomed letter that you wrote on the 13th. I don't know how
many V-Mail letters you wrote that day, but I received one and twos so I'll answer them now.
I'm glad to hear that you are receiving my mail.
Mother, in your letter you said that you hope I'm really well. Mother, I'm in the best of health,
so please don't worry, I might be a little tired from a problem we just had, but otherwise I'm O.K.
I'm glad to know that daddy's arm is better and that he's able to work again. I'm glad also mother
to know that you're over the gripp. Mother, please always take care of yourself, because this war
won't last forever, and when it does end I want to come home to you with my other brothers, and
find you, my sweet mother, waiting for us.
I hope that you received the money I sent you mother, and that you will use it.
Mother, if you have any trouble in mailing my pkg. show them the letter I wrote asking for it.
Rosie said in a letter I received from her tonight that she couldn't send a pkg. to me because she
didn't have a letter from me asking for it. She said she had it over to the P.O. and they refused to
Well mother, there isn't much more to say, so I'll close with lots of love mother dear, to you
daddy and the kids.
Your loving Son,
God Bless you mother, and please don't worry about me.
