Somewhere in France

Dearest Gee.

Got your swell May 3rd & 4th letters today, kid, and also a cute v-mail from L Harry. It took me an hour to figure out what it was but I finally did it. He had drawn three pictures of heads and had teeth marks on one and he gave them (the pictures) all names. I guess one of them was supposed to have been killed or something. Anyway I was supposed to figure out who did it. He had clues and all on it and upside down in the corner was the answer. Such a guy.

Hope you can read this as it just started raining and got this paper all blotted.

Well, honey, officially I find that I’ve got 81 points. That last four looks awful big unless they lower the quota. Sure hope so but you know the army as well as I do by now. Just don’t let it get you down honey. We’ll be together yet. At least we got the biggest part of it whipped.

I see you didn’t get to take your T.B. test after all. I wish you would but I don’t think there is anything the matter with you that way. If I recall right, you are anything but flat chested. Some of those German women looked absolutely abnormal. I guess they must go in for that.

I’m glad you are finally hearing from Chick and that he’s back with his outfit. He surely ought to get to come home. You guys had better quit worrying now. There is nothing more to worry about.

I’m enclosing another batch of films. Maybe later I can include the negatives. Just want to make sure first that you get the pictures. I still have a lot of negatives left from France and I think Italy. Guess they’ll keep.

I was with the third army, kid, you wanted to know. I saw Regensburg and sides of mountains there. Also the Rhine is a wicked looking river. Guess I’d better stop for now, honey. I sure love you and miss you. Hope I see you soon.

So long now.
