Hello Everybody,


Well, another week has passed and everything is going okay. There is at least one consolation that every week that passes it is that much closer to the end of this no good war. Glad to get your letter Mother and Yours to (sic) Ray with that picture of yourself in that basketball uniform. You really have a swell outfit and look good in it. Well, I suppose you are getting ready for springswork again. Here the people have started spading up and plowing their fields. They seem rather backward about their farming here too. Is raining now and a damp cold wind, so doesn’t feel like spring now, but have had some nice sunny days. Had a letter from Chris again this week. He is still getting along okay. Also had a letter from Osborn. He isn’t to far from us over here. Would sure be fun to see him. Haven’t see (sic) anyone I know since I’ve been over here. Hoping this finds all of you a feeling fine.


Your son & brother,
