Wesley to Folks, 10/20/1942 

October 20, 1942 Tuesday

Dearest Folks

Will write you a few lines while I am waiting for chow. Seems like thatís the only time I can find to write.

I got a letter from Virginia, 2 Stuart papers (August) and a card from Mrs. Cooper. The papers were old but really enjoy reading them all.

This is a pretty windy country. It donít blow hard but it seems thereís a breeze every day. It sure would be hot if it werenít for that.

We played ball Sunday afternoon, got beat by the first platoon. But last night we beat the 3 battalion headquarters. That makes us 4 wins and 2 losses and we're are just starting into the second half of our league so weíre not the tail end yet.

Gee folks there isnít much to write about. I suppose you have the barn all done and forgot about now. Sure wish I could see it. When you get it all done, take a picture of it and send it to me.

They say some more mail has come in so I am looking forward to some more news from home and Betty. I sure do miss my letters every day.

I was on KP Sunday so never got to write any letters except one to Betty. I want to write to about 10 different people but seems like when I get a letter written to you or Betty my time is all gone. I havenít even written to Virginia for over a week.

All in all folks itís just to let you know Iím fine and get enough to eat , have a place to sleep, and I donít want you to worry about me. I hope this finds you all well and happy and keep your chins up. Iíll be seeing you by and by.

Lots of Love

Wesley

P.S. Eat plenty of turkey for me.
