Just a few lines letting you know that I'm O.K. and in the best of health and hoping that all
at home are the same.
I wish I could tell you mother, how happy I am to be back here in the states again.
Yes mother, I got off the hospital ship this morning after being on the water for 20 days. It
was really a nice trip over. A band played for us when we got off the boat and Red Cross nurses
gave us doughnuts milk and a half pint of ice cream. They really treated us nice.
The hospital I'm now in is only temporary, and I expect to be sent to a hospital closer to home
within a few days.
I have to have another operation on my wrist mother to try and fix the nerve to two of my fingers
that has no feeling. My fingers are a little stiff yet mother, but will be O.K. so there's nothing
to worry about mother.
Mother, I'll give you my new address as soon as I get to the next hospital so you can write to me,
but don't write to me as long as I'm in this hospital here because I'll probably be out of here
before they get here.
Well mother, I can't think of anything else to write but I will try and call you up tonight.
I'll close now with lots of love to you mother dear, daddy and the kids.
Your loving Son,
