Hello to each one of you,


First I want to thank you for your letters. Just got one from Cap, Mother, and Ray the one with the picture of you in it. You really looked good in that outfit. Yes, someday which I hope isn’t to far off I’ll be putting on some clothes which are similar to that.


Well, how are you wintering? Imagine you’ve had plenty of cold weather back there by now. Guess it has been down to ten above here and it snows quite often so we have quite a bit of that here now. Must be about four or five inches on the level. Hasn’t drifted very much yet though and I hope it doesn’t . We’ve been making out pretty good lately isn’t bad as long as we don’t have to move around to much.(sic)  Got the opportunity to go to church again today. Sure enjoyed it to. Hoping this finds all of you feeling fine.


Your son & brother,
