Got your Sept. 30 air mail and Oct. 15th and one from Mom of Oct. 2. Then on top of that I got another package from you. Was a Christmas package too. It had a can of your very good divinity in it, jar of welcome coffee, peanuts, comb, stiptic [styptic] pencil, funnies and all tied up in Christmas paper. It seems a shame to open them now but I can’t help it. Sure thank you, honey. I feel like a heel not being able to send you anything. Yesterday I got a letter from Mom dated Oct. 27 and a card from the Readers Digest telling me that Mr. & Mrs. Ozier is sending me the magazine for another year. I really like it and will write and tell them so as soon as I can.
I have a couple pictures I’m enclosing that turned out pretty good. The big one is from Doug’s camera and the little one from mine. I don’t have the negatives for either one tho as the guy borrowed my camera long enough to snap one roll of film he had. Doug has the negative to the other one but with his camera in order to get one picture you have to have the whole roll developed.
So Erv sent Mae some diamond earrings hey? Can’t figure out where the devil he ever found them in Italy. They must have set him back plenty. Me, I couldn’t buy a sick cat a lunch right now but we do have a rumor out that we might get paid in a few days. Seems to be some doubt as to whether we get combat pay or not. Why, I don’t know, but I’ll let you know later how it comes out.
Well, gotta go now. Thanks a lot for the package, kid. Lord, how I miss you. Love you like everything. Hope I see you soon. Be good.
So long now.
P.S. I have a Jerry cap on in the big picture.
