How’s my Honey today—I hope not quite so tired tonight. I have a slight headache but it would pass away if I
lay would gently put my head on a pillow and drift into the land of Nod.
I moved into another barracks today, they put us in different platoons—I am in Headquarters platoon for the present—Don’t know what my duties will be.
Very sorry to hear your Dad is sick hope he is better by now—The news about your Grandmother doesn’t supprise me any. And Ruby has a boil on her arm unh?—Tell her to pit a chew of snuff on it—Ha.
I recieved a letter from Aunt Ruth today, she said you wrote her a card—She also sent a “buck” so I sent for some cig.—
I can’t say how much a furlough would cost [illegible cross out]. Probably cost $30.00 or pretty close for a round trip ticket—I could probably hitch part of the way—Ha—Listen—I haven’t even the slightest idea whether I’ll get a furlough yet. Just so we don’t build our castle to high and then get caught in an earthquake.

Darling—I think I’ll close early tonight,—writing by this dim light doesn’t help my headache much and I (
thing) think I talk wrote all I could think of the last couple days.
I love you
