Dearest Mother,

    Just received your most welcomed V-Mail that you wrote on the 13th and very glad to hear that you are all well at home. As for me mother, I'm in the best of health and feeling fine.

   There's not much to write about mother, except that this time on the front is a lot better than the last time, for one reason it's nice and warm during the day and nites, and it's a little quieter also. Even the foxholes are better. We have cardboard in them to lay on. So far we haven't had any rain which makes a lot of difference.

   We're getting plenty to eat, and the food we get is really O.K.

   I guess this is all for now mother, so I'll close with lots of love to you mother dear, daddy and the kids, and Pauline.


   Please don't worry about anything.

   Your loving Son,
