11 November 1944

In Holland


I promised to write you whenever and as often a[s] I can and I hope to be able to hold to my promise. The country and it[s] peoples are still charming and, don’t know what to do to please the American soldiers.

I’m still “sweating out” the Camera and other Sunday [sic] items which you no doubt sent me and which will arrive someday. I’ve heard from various sources that there is warehouse after warehouse with mail awaiting to be sorted. There are quite a few people on the continent. I assure you, my dearest.

As for me. I’m still in perfect health despite the iron rations meaning C, D, K rations and the inclement weather. Actually, I surprise even myself with my iron man constitution.

I love you
