Dearest Gee. I got your swell number of Aug 26 today, kid, and a card from Sis. Twas one of those moron cards and pretty cute.

Dearest Gee. Might as well start writing while I’m sweating out a mail call. Should know in a few minutes whether I have any or not. When I do get some it generally is late mail.
