[Transcription begins] U S O
Nov. 8 
Dear Miss Blaney,
I know I did not keep my promise of coming to see you before I left but you will have to excuse me please.
We are on maneuvers, the whole 3rd Army, in Louisiana, + it is not so nice.
Is Nick Coracci attached to the 3rd Army? If he is will you please send me [his] address so I may look him up?
There is very little time to write letters, that I’m catching up on my correspondence with postal cards, so you understand.
Remember me to all at school + I’d appreciate it very much if I heard from the club. So long for now.
