31 Jan 41.
Had a very good day & night. Was up yesterday twice for periods of two hours. Still very weak on my pins, and my hole system seems to be out of gear.
You see the weather is so blinkin awful at this time of the year, that I hardly have a chance to open my windows and get fresh air – Lately I have also been coughing in the morning, and that’s bad, cause it tires me right out for the day.
Nothing new here, except that the Ginnies are loosing their Empire fast, serves them right.
Hope you two are well this winter and taking things easy.
February out to see me ready to go on home.
Anxious to be with you all
Lots of love
