Tuesday, October 12, 1943

Dearest Gee. Well, how do you feel today? Sure wish you’d quit having those bad old spells. Anytime you get sick you call the doctor. I got your nice donation yesterday, thank you. We’re all broke but happy. Nearly everyone has allotments or sent their money home because they thought they were leaving right awayContinue reading “Tuesday, October 12, 1943”

Monday, October 11, 1943

Dearest Gee. Got your Wed, Thursday, and Saturday letters today, kid. Also got one from Sis. What are you trying to do, ride the sick book to? Being sick to your stomach don’t sound like nerves to me. Why don’t you have the doctor anyway when you’re sick? Do you have to ask your motherContinue reading “Monday, October 11, 1943”

Saturday, October 9, 1943

Dearest Gee. Just finished eating — terrible on account it was fish again — and no butter. Guess we used all our points up. Thought I’d better write this noon as I want to go to town tonight. Think I’ll take in some shows over the week-end. This will be the first week-end that IContinue reading “Saturday, October 9, 1943”

Friday, October 8, 1943

Dearest Gee. Well, kid, I really rated today. In this morning’s mail-call I got three packages, and a letter from you. Sis sent me a box of fudge and some candy bars (Hershey’s), and Claude + Mildred sent me some of those big Hershey’s, and Es + Harry sent some candy and a whole lotContinue reading “Friday, October 8, 1943”

Thursday, October 7, 1943

Dearest Gee. Thought I’d better start using some of this airmail stationary for a change. Got quite a bit on hand now. Finally got the other package of airmail envelopes and v-mail yesterday, that you sent. Got a whole raft of back mail again too, today. Didn’t you say you’d sent me some airmail stampsContinue reading “Thursday, October 7, 1943”

Wednesday, October 6, 1943

Dearest Gee. Got your Sunday letter yesterday but went to town with Close last night so didn’t write any. Also got an A.P.O. one from Mom dated August 21 and a letter from Sis. She wrote 4 pages type written which is a record for her, I believe. Am writing this at noon so IContinue reading “Wednesday, October 6, 1943”

Monday, October 4, 1943

Dearest Gee. What do you think of my new stationary. Bought it last night, also, lighter flints, fluid, and a new toothbrush. Having had the same one since I’ve been in, I thought it about time. Reckon we ain’t going so soon after all. Must have been a sudden change in plans. Now we areContinue reading “Monday, October 4, 1943”

Sunday, October 3, 1943

Dearest Gee. Got your Thursday and Friday letters today. Sounds like you are up to your neck in work too. The rat race has officially started now. Will probably be leaving sometime this coming week. We had our week-end passes cut down to overnight yesterday. Had to arise this a.m. at seven and go toContinue reading “Sunday, October 3, 1943”

Friday, October 1, 1943

Dearest Gee. Got your Wednesday letter this morn. Also got a letter from Coe with gum in it. Did you plan on sending me the snapshots to see? In Sis’s letter she sounded like somebody already had sent them. She wanted to know if I didn’t think they were good. Business is sure picking upContinue reading “Friday, October 1, 1943”

Thursday, September 30, 1943

Dearest Gee. Got your Monday letter and Tuesday letter today. After I sent that one letter with the ribbon in it I wondered if it would go allright. Did you have to pay any extra on it? Was more like a package. Had a very enjoyable evening last night except I lost considerable sleep. DouglassContinue reading “Thursday, September 30, 1943”
