15 Gen. Can. Hospital
My dear Ma & kids;
Well up to yesterday I guess I was getting along to good. Yesterday morning I got another darn attack, that lasted about one hour.
My doctor thinks it’s the last one as my heart, circulation blood pressure & pulse are extraordinary good.
I believe it was a slight indigestion from something I ate Saturday night.
It’s going to set me back as I was going to sit up by new year. Now it means a few more weeks in bed, how I am fed up. This last attack I guess will sure send me to Canada.
It cleared quite easy – and I was ok last night.
Just received your letter of Nov. 22. Glad to see you went to Nellie’s for Thanksgiving. I sent Nellie, Warren & you each a nice english calender with my regimental Xmas card. Did you get it. I mailed most of my Xmas cards before I took sick -
Do you tell how you made out regarding your status in USA. And when will Ed Jr have to register for service.
Did you get the extra allowance i.e. $60.00 instead of 55.00 for you – you are intitled from Oct 2. 1940 thats the date of my promotion. Your extra allowance of $33.00 was deducted from me since August last ck up and see if you got it all -
Are you getting gov’t exchange on your cks now. The board has advised me that it was ok from Oct. on – See that you get it.
What do you think of the licking the Ginnies are getting. I guess they are just about ready to fold up and go home.
This writing in bed is awful. I hope you can read it -
Where are you going for Xmas & NY dinners -
You can join me in this here hospital. Good meals but I am only getting about 6 ounces per day, all liquid.
Not so good when your hungry.
Do write often.
Lots of love to all of you
Be seeing you may be sooner than I think
