How are you this evening—O.K. I hope—
I’m writing this letter under queer circumstances—A guy wanted me to see how nice his pen wrote and here I am.
I’m going to try to make connections with “Rats” Reagle tomorrow—I think he is at Hollandia and I’m going down in a B-25—I expect to check out in one soon—Just for the H—— of it.—I guess it won’t hurt to get some twin engine time.
Most of the boys are playing poker this evening—But not me—you know I’m g good lil’ boy and don’t do those things anymore it says here in fine print. All joking aside—I haven’t in a mo or so—Just hurts me to lose money.
I have your package boxed up

and addressed—I hope the ‘dress stays on the box long enough to get there, it will probably take a couple of months to get to Frisco let alone Ohio.
Hear you are working again you ought to get a steady job like that one—$5 a day—5 1/2 or 6 days—Hmmm—not bad.—Well—Reckon you will soon.—Help build our nest egg—Ha.
Well Honey—guess this is enough B.S.—when I didn’t even intend to write a litter
I Love You
