Dear Ma & Junie;
I guess by now you have a choice of addresses. The above is quite in order.
I have just returned from the Cinema, where I saw Sp. Tracy & Bob Young, in Northern Passage (or North West Passage) Have you seen it; it’s quite a picture. Went over with three of my instructors.
I have a nice bunch of chaps here. I am quite lonesome of my regiment, but think will like it quite well here.
I am doing about four hours of reading a day. If this war should last a few years I’ll become quite an English scholar. I am called upon to lecture about once a week on different military subject that I as Commandant choose to my liking.
Got a letter from Ed Jr. a couple of days ago. You know how much news one can expect on his letters. All I hear is about his car and what he’ll do at College, great chap. Curse those darn heinies here goes that noise again. I should worry. To bed I am going. Lots of love darlings.
