Italian Rest Camp
Just a few lines to let you know that I'm feeling fine and hoping that all at home are the same.
I received the letter today that you had written on March 17 and am very glad to hear that
Pauline is working in Altoona. I hope that she can keep your mind off worrying so much. And
mother, please don't worry about anything, because I'm O.K. and there's nothing to worry about.
I received a letter from Joe the other day and he says that he's O.K. so mother there isn't
anything that you should worry about.
There isn't anything else to say right now, so I'll close mother hoping that this letter finds
you all in the best of health, and all my love to you mother dear, daddy, the kids and Pauline.
Your loving Son,
