I received your nice gifts yesterday. I needed both the shoe shine kit & sewing kit and had about decided to buy them myself. I had Bobby’s picture upon my bed while I studied last night. I miss him much as I do you all (when I have time to miss anybody!).
I have just a few minutes until they get to me on our last clothes check here. We still have no idea who is leaving tomorrow or where anyone is going but we are naturally all excited. I will let you know, of course, as soon as possible.
By the way I sent a ten dollar bill in my last letter. Let me know whether you get it.
We get paid today.
I am sending home my insurance cerificate. Put it away for me please.
Excuse the haste please.
Loads of Love
