Italian Rest Camp
Just a few lines to let you know that I'm O.K. and in the best of health, and hoping that all
at home are the same.
I'm still having it pretty easy mother. We went on a little hike this morning, and this
afternoon we had a little problem to run through.
I was at the movies last night mother, and seen a pretty good stage show. There was all G.I.s in
it and was really O.K. The movie that played after the stage show, was "The Lodger," with Merle
Oberon, and George Saunders. It was sort of a murder picture and kept you in suspense clear
I received a letter from Joe today in ans. to the one I wrote to him. I had asked him if he had
any idea of where I am, and in his letter he said that he has a pretty good idea but couldn't come
to see me because we're too far apart. I'm going to keep on trying to see him though.
I also received a letter from Tommy today. I was really surprised to hear from him. Tell him
that I'll ans. his letter as soon as I get a chance.
I hope that Pauline is making out O.K. at her new secretary job. Tell her I said hello.
Well mother, I guess this is all for now so I'll close with lots of love to you mother dear,
daddy and the kids.
Your loving Son,
Please don't worry about me mother, and tell daddy not to worry either. God bless you and keep
