Long time no write eh?
Been buzy—Flew two days in a row to Formosa and spent the rest of the time in the sack—Well not quite all of it but a lot.—Those are tiring missions—Long and hot.—We are having some fairly good missions, long range—Lots of good combat and a faint chance of running into a Nip—One Flight saw a couple Nips but couldn’t leave their bombers.—I was in the area but must’ve ziged when they zaged.
Two more new boys in the Sqd. and one of them in my Flt.—Lot of pilots now.

Got a letter from Sib today—No news.
