Dearest Mother,

    Just a few lines letting know that I'm O.K. and in the best of health and hoping that all at home are the same.

   I received your most welcomed letter that you wrote on June 21, and enjoyed reading it very much.

   I'm very glad to hear that you all are in good health, and as for me I'm also O.K.

   You asked if I seen Russell G yet. No mother, I haven't seen him yet. His regiment is nearby but I haven't had a chance to look him up.

   I'm very sorry to hear that Phil left, but at least mother, it won't be as tough as it has been when he gets to where he's going. Everyone is expecting the Jerries to crack up any wk. now, so don't worry mother because it won't be long till Tony, Phil, Joe and I come marching back to your arms. I'm glad that you had a chance to see him before he left.

   You asked if I received the pkg. yet. No mother I haven't received it yet but I don't think it will be too long till it gets here.

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

   Your loving Son,
