Dearest Gee.

Haven’t got any mail for the last two days so there isn’t much I got to offer today in the way of news.

We got our PX rations today so I can smoke awhile longer. I bought another guys ration of cigarettes so I’m pretty well fixed up. Chesterfields to kid! Doesn’t that sound good?

Honey, it sure is sweet of you to have a mass said for me. I didn’t know they would do that. You told me one other time you were going to have it done but I never did hear whether you did or not. Yes, you bet I still have my medal. Got if fastened to my dog tags in such a way that I don’t think there is much danger of losing this one.

Douglass received the Bronze Star, honey, I’m glad for him as he sure earned it. So many seem to get them that most G.I.s figure don’t deserve them that it kinda takes the glory out of it. But he doesn’t have to worry about that end of it.

I don’t understand why Chick hasn’t sent more letters. I wrote him the other night and asked him. Guess he had a good time on his rest in Strasbourg so he tells me.

I hope your weather has calmed down a little by now. Guess you really had a time from the way the papers read.

I suppose you were pretty busy while Mildred was having all her troubles. I know you must have written me about it but I just haven’t got it yet.

Hope you get the fifty bucks okay. It will probably be some time before you get it tho. Must be on the same order as sending home a package. Use it on whatever you want to.

Sure do wish I could see you again soon. Got lots to talk over with you. We’ll call it talking anyhow. Gotta go now. Sure love you and miss you, kid. Be good.

So long now.
