Dear Folks

I said last night Iíd write you a letter so guess I better live up to my word. We just got through having a blackout. The whole state of Tenn was blacked out between 9 and 9:30. I was a fire warden in this barracks. All I had to do was see that nobody smoked or turned the lights on or left the place and etc.

We are moving out in tents tomorrow and I think our furlough will be slowed up a day or two on account of it, but Iím sure Iíll come so just have patience and Iíll get there some time soon.

I didnít get any letter from you this week yet or the Graphic so donít know much news from home.

Gee folks I donít know anything to write. I havenít been doing much lately and I feel fine.

Virginia said she had talked to Jerome Baum.

Guess thatís all I know tonight and Iíll be seeing you soon.

Lots of Love
