your letter today, was glad that your are doing so well with all the war work and
you seem to like the mortar. It makes
me laugh when I think the way you always liked to watch things explode and smoke
...but don't get your nose too close, [I'm worried] about your ears ringing. Dont they give you any
cotton to put in your ears? They ought to. I am all right and that [goes] for the rest
of us. About the shows up in Texas, is that in the camp or are you boys allowed to
go out in town. If so, what kind of shows house and shows do they have there. I
can't ask you what time did you get home last night, like I used to do. Like
where were you, where did you go...makes you laugh don't it, you can put one over
on me now.
It's like this from now on, who was with you and what did you do. Always do
what's right because it is right. I think you will.
It's cold out tonight. I am in the front room and it's warm in this room - don't
that make you think about the furnace? I am not
(worrying) about you Arthur Just be carefull. I am glad that you are not
worrying about anything, fine letters.
