Dear Folks

Must write you a line or two as I didnít write nothing but a card last night. Itís rained all day and I havenít done nothing all say so I can complain about being tired or hop as the weather is pretty cool.

I havenít got very long to write as the lights go out in about 6 minutes.

Iím sorry I forgot about your birthday last month Dad I just got mixed up I guess.

I feel good and donít know any news. I rote to Virginia and Betty, I like it here lots better you can at least keep clean. I got my hair cut tonight.

I changed my address cause we donít get to leave here very often on account of the new troops coming in.

Well folks guess I better say good night. I feel fine and will write more tomorrow night.
