Dearest Ma & Junie,
Things are happening so fast and furious this day that I hardly can find time to write my babys.
I am sending you copy of a speech I had to make at a dinner last night. Knowing conditions in America and knowing a few of your friends pacifists and haters of Hitler, I brought out the question of neutrality specially U.S.A.
I am getting to be quite a reader, composer, etc. Send my speech to Junior.
This afternoon I attended a wonderful field day, I am sun burned as an Indian.
Now 10 pm to bed I go-
With lots of love
