Audette to Mr. & Mrs. Slaymaker, 04/04/1945 

Orchard, Nebr. Apr. 4, 1945

Dear Mr. & Mrs. Slaymaker,

I received a letter from Wesley this morning and although I'm sure you have received one too I wanted to let you know.

It was written Mar 20, still in New Guinea. I'll copy some of it.

He said he had received letters that were three months old & that it would not do much good to write until he writes and gives another address. That sounds like he may be moved, I hope to the states.

"I'm getting along swell, I eat like a horse and sleep like a baby. My back is almost well. They have taken the bandge off. But my arm is still in a cast.

"I wish I could write more but just have a little patience and you'll soon know everything. Take care of yourself and I'll be seeing you."

It was a V. Mail. Please pardon the mistakes & scribbling but I'm so excited over his letter.

I must get back to work.
